The evolution of online communities?

I'm looking for a post I read here — at least I think I did — concerning the natural evolution of online communities. The conclusion talked about population growth leading to divisive groups that clash with each other leading to the decline of the community... or something along those lines. [more inside]

Shirky on Internet Groups

Shirky on Internet Groups: All groups of any integrity have a constitution. The constitution is always partly formal and partly informal. At the very least, the formal part is what's substantiated in code -- "the software works this way."
Article about groups (including Metafilter) on the internet. Quite Interesting.

online community dynamics: cruel v caring

Jorn's proto-rant goes right to the heart of online community dynamics, though I'd offer that it's the intelligent cruel folks who are the most dangerous. I'm tempted to see the caring/cruel split in terms of the political left and right, though I know that's not at all fair. What do you think, is there any wisdom in Jorn's words? And what does all this have to do with James Joyce?
