Shirky: Communities, Audiences, and Scale

" Can we get the best of both worlds? Can we have a medium that spreads messages to a large audience, but also allows all the members of that audience to engage with one another like a single community?" The answer seems to be "No." "

Other forms of computer mediated community may form though - around a list - a site - or a blog or group of blogs? UpMyStreet GrubStreet

I am looking to find Visualisations of interconnections between blogs. Kinda like a wiki visual link map (see visual tour at the foot of the page). But with strength of connections indicated (in some way...).
