From a link from Joel on Software is this essay on groups and social software. Lots of interesting points, e.g. that the group needs rules to prevent it from ruining itself, that social and technological issues are inseparable and that a core of members arise which should be nurtured.
No posts for long time, I have been on vacation, away from computers. I've gotten through a good deal of books, all fictional. Not having read much fiction for the last year or so, I find it surprising that a book can still keep me occupied in bed in the morning so that breakfast turns into lunch and I spend most of the day on the couch reading.
I've also been thinking. Mostly about life and what I like to spend my time on. Nothing major came out of it, though. :-)
