I think they see  cohousing as one kind of co-living or some broader genre. I 
haven’t read the article yet, but I suspect they did not cover intentional 
communities either.

I had the same problem when trying to write on governance for a general 
audience, such as the post on Reality and Truth Seeking and topics you are 
hesitant to raise in your communities. It isn’t anything that is particular or 
confined to cohousing but if I mention cohousing, I’m in danger of being 
listened to as a cohousing marketer when that isn’t the central point. If I 
said co-living, that might not happen because it can apply to practically every 
living situation.
