Ross Mayfield on tribe-ing

Ross Mayfield, CEO of Socialtext, makes a good point on the Corante Many2Many blog: small is beautiful when it comes to making social networks. Not small, as in small networks, though that is certainly a major issue, but in terms of the teams that can build tools for specialized interest groups.

Disclosure: I am on Socialtext’s board of advisors, so I may be full of shit when it comes to endorsing Ross — read and decide for yourself. Take a gander at Ross’ “More-Extreme Optimist” posting, as well.
