Maybe my new tag. CAPTCHA from the week I had to authenticate Blogger.

Blogger TRUE thought:

you've gotta wonder about these community minded s/w producers who take the power away from the community and start policing their users.

doesn't the success of craigslist and myspace speak to this?

Blogger Andy thought:


I think what's happening isn't that the proprietors of such communities are starting to lock-down, but rather they're in the catch-up phase of a permanent cycle we'll start to see emerge in these virtual worlds.

For the most part these proprietors truly do want to allow the public free reign--their strategy is just to try and ride the wave. By riding it, I mean contextualizing, framing, selling it to the rest of us. Problem is, the wave has a tide. It ebbs and flows, and their frames can't quite keep up. So periodically, their context (perceived as limits) isn't quite aligned with their users attitude.

In general, I have faith they'll compensate accordingly--it's just low tide on the edge.
