A Group is its Own Worst Enemy by Clay Shirky

An old but great read about group affects on the internet. Seems to be a good fit and still very relevant for this new community and basically all internet communities.

Honestly it might just be the case that humans aren’t cut out for large scale online social networks. I hope that’s not true, which is part of why I built this. But I’ve been wrong before.

kris, that could very well be it. We just aren't adapted to such huge social structures. We need to work on the connections between them, like a graph database.

IMO, small groups on the internet have always worked best, and that goes all the way back to the early days on the web.
