zengestrom.com: Why some social network services work and others don't Or: the case for object-centered sociality

source: about link 
The fallacy is to think that social networks are just made up of people. They're not; social networks consist of people who are connected by a shared object.
Here we have people
Groups of people
Objects
Interest rooms
More action oriented thingies comming

We have insides (private items) and outsides (the river).  We are aware of our boundaries.  At some point we will be more in control of what leaks out of (gets published from) our domain boundaries and our group boundaries.   Our domain will become a giant leviathan animal well adapted to living on the Internet.

KEWL ! I like this.  It should be cleaned up with some alternative spelling & perhaps different group examples and put in the about group
