Internet navigators think small: An article on MSNBC.com which talks about the formation of web communities. One of th questions it tries to address: “The Web follows a power-law distribution meaning there are a lot of sparsely connected sites and a very small number of highly connected sites. Can the rise of small-scale communities, such as those that grow up around Weblogs, change that picture?”
The web communities are already there…its just that we cannot see them, because we are at “street level”. Rise up a little, and we’ll already see the pockets existing, exemplified in the weblogs, their blogrolls and links.
