In response to: Tiffany Winman elsewhereWau... I really burn after reading your post (as you mentioned on Twitter)- A while ago I started to collect a selection of my public profiles using a service called Dandyid. However this does not reflect the truth as some of the special interest communities I am on are not even available in this service. Honestly I was shocked after filling out the registration for DandyID. So many profiles, so many communities. Than I brought up a thesis (in German language) "Communities are dead..." Long story short: If we are talking about communities that you have to register for. We are talking about a 1:1 copy of offline communities into the web. However I lifes changes. SocialWeb is more Ad-Hoc style. We care about a topic now. And tomorrow about a different topic. The old model of communities do not allow such a dynamic. One way out of this are Micro Communities (sorry again in German) . Or Communities that get founded around an individual blog post. Let's exchange your thoughts about this..
