On Social Software

Here's a fascinating article by Clay Shirky about the social dynamics of groups of people, especially as mediated by software. I found it courtesy of Joel on Software.

That was an interesting article! I printed it and gave it to a couple folks at work. I found the opening section about why groups dont work amusing--his description of the process of leaving a party reminded me of sheep waiting for one of them to move into the barn and then all of them rushing the door at once.
