How ForumMagnum builds communities of inquiry

Link post

The website you’re currently using is powered by ForumMagnum. But what really is ForumMagnum? What is it for, and why was it designed this way? In this post, I cast ForumMagnum as a medium for building communities of inquiry. I show how ForumMagnum is designed to build norms like rationality and long-form. Lastly, I suggest how the ForumMagnum developers could use the body of CoI research to guide their future product design.

I wrote this post, and posted it to LessWrong. But I’m link-posting it on the EA Forum because I believe most ForumMagnum development is done by CEA, and most developers are on this forum.
