More about this link

The Internet is more like a city of strangers than a collection of close-knit communities.

This August 15 Alertbox discusses how to provide value to users, rather than worry about 'building communities'. Edited discussion groups, instead of free-for-all chat rooms, is one example. Value can also be derived from analyzing the collective behavior of users (mega-collaboration).
