As computational tools increase in capability, and decrease in difficulty, the process of discovery in computational astrophysics is changing. In this talk, I will describe a particular application of these computational tools: understanding the formation of the first stars and galaxies. I will continue by describing the self-organizing communities that are growing around software and computational tools, spanning both academic institutions and fields of study, and possible future directions for these communities.
