The authors highlight Japanese famous Web2.0 service “human power search HATENA” as a demonstration of a new learning style. In this paper, we report the community formation process that occurred by the embedding of symbolic logic in a quiz-format “logic puzzle,” around which the members of “HATENA (http://q.hatena.ne.jp/),” who were interested in symbolic logic, gathered and began spontaneously communicating. The formation of this community was considered a learning style, and a new learning style was therefore proposed.
