Robert Paterson on Web Communities

I’m not particularly a big fan of web-based relationships or communities.  But Paterson’s new essay on the topic is a good one.  Read it.

I think there are definite possibilities in the spaces he describes.  The question for me is whether our “forced” participation in the current system will allow enough of us sufficient time and energy to do the initial bootstrapping of the process of change.  It can happen; I’m just not convinced it will.
