O'Reilly discussion betwen Steven Johnson, David Sims and Rael Dornfest touches upon MeFi.

Sims. A blog tribe.

Johnson. Yeah

Dornfest. Metafilter comes closest to that of the things I've seen. It still has a personality, but it's very much a group dynamic.

"MetaFilter 'A blog tribe'" might be another cool masthead quote, no?

Boy I'd like to read that book.

We're all a bunch of little blogger ants!

In the Greta Van Susteren thread that appeared a little while ago, I compared O'Reilly's saggy, unpleasant head to my scrotum.

God I hope he saw that.

There is more than one O'Reilly. Some of them are companies, not humans.

I realized that right after I hit post.

That's just how much I wish Bill O'Reilly would choke on my comment.

My foot is so much taster than I would have guessed.

I've bought "Emergence" (Steven Johnson's book) but haven't started it yet. Anyone read it and have any thoughts?

Yes, that would be a cool masthead quote. I'm still rooting for 13,457 monkeys...

We're a tribe? Cool. When do I get my ceremonial headdress?

Jonmc - I suggest we party first and design our own later. Monkey tails, as per ColdChef, would be nice. :)
