How Active Rainer's are Like The Borg

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Coastal Redwoods

 

How Active Rainer's are like the BorgWhen I first published this post one year ago, I believe AR had less than 20,000 members.  The Borg analogy is still right on the mark.

At dinner tonight I was excitedly telling my husband, Garry, about Active Rain and the close community it has spawned.  I told him how we watch out for one another, give and receive encouragement, absorb all the information we can and share it with the group, and how the network is growing by leaps and bounds.  Garry said, "You sound like the Borg, part of a collective."

Yes, yes, exactly! 

Consider:

  • "The Borg have a singular goal, namely the consumption of technology... 
  • The Borg only want to "raise the quality of life" of the species they "assimilate..."  
  • This collective consciousness is experienced by the Borg as "thousands" of voices - they are collectively aware... 
  • Among the many advantages their collective consciousness affords them, the Borg hive-mind allows for instantaneous adaptations..
  • ...they travel the galaxy, increasing their numbers and advancing by "assimilating" other species and their technologies

This is a perfect analogy for AR. 

  • We have a common goal, to give the best service possible to our clients and to learn to harness technology to that end. 
  • From everything I have read on the AR posts, the members want to raise the quality of life of their sphere of influence and beyond. 
  • AR is the ever growing "web," "hub," or "hive" that is giving us a huge collective search engine voice. 
  • We are all learning how to adapt to the changing marketplace
  • We are increasing our numbers by the minute.

We are Borg!

Hi Fran - A friend of mine actually mentioned this analogy to me here once, but in a negative way.  I like your spin on this!

Fran,

 

Well, this is the only Borg collective that got 2.75 million dollars. In cheeseburgers, that's...really kinda great!

The (real) Borg just kinda cruise around the universe like a lost pizza delivery man looking for someone with a check. Then they meet a bunch of people who are crabby and wanna blow up them up.

 

I'm sticking with this assimilation, thank you!
