Quote from A World Without Work:

"When I asked Hunnicutt what sort of modern community most resembles his ideal of a post-work society, he admitted, “I’m not sure that such a place exists.” "

I think it does, but I don't think it's a geographical space: I think it's a social space, or spaces, and one of them is what we call fandom. And if you looked closely I suspect pretty much the whole arts world as well.

I think that once subsistence is provided for, sufficiently connected social groups create purposes for their members, and that remuneration for those purposes is secondary.

There is a whole separate set of issues around how you provide 'subsistence' for people, given that what is needed for subsistence varies so widely.
