"In a recent email conversation between Louis Rosenfeld and myself, I put 
down a lot of my thoughts about online communities. I wrote specifically 
about reputation management, collaborative filtering, mailing list 
management, content management systems, and distributed categorization and 
indexing efforts. Believe it or not all of these things are related.
The concept of an online community is very broad. It can be anything from a 
small close-knit group of people who email each other about a mutual hobby 
to a mailing list or Web site with thousands and thousands of users. There 
are thousands of these communities scattered across the Web, covering far 
too many topics to even attempt to list. Online communities are one of 
those subjects that encompasses a very wide spectrum of concepts. I'll try 
to break out a few areas that I have examples for."    (04)
