Professional Communities start to make extensive use of Web 2.0 tools and platforms to enhance their knowledge work. But, with the Web 2.0 and the new computing capabilities in the mobile ubiquitous Internet, the relationship between professionals in their closed communities and amateurs in the Web 2.0 is debated again. We show here a living community around the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) world heritage of the Bamiyan Valley in Afghanistan which tries to find an intermediary position between highly trusted work in the cause of cultural preservation and protection on the one side, and communication with a public audience and investors in the sustainable development of the Bamiyan Valley on the other. Our mobile Social Software scenario Virtual Campfire assembles some tools we developed for this community in a common research and development framework.
