Most interesting.

I have a dumb question... by "dynamic slippage" do you mean the tendency of user communities toward alternative contexts when the existing ones are unsatisfactory? Or something more specific?


The former, Brian. That tendency is sometimes creative, even illicit, and can reshape what constitutes the community.


Yes. It's not "if you build it they will come." It's "if you don't build it, then they will build it, and then they will come, and they won't tell you where it is, will they, Mr. Jones?"

Exhibit A: http://www.thefacebook.com. I've been meaning to blog on that one for some time.

Thanks for linking to that article, Bryan. I would have missed that one, most likely.
