Participation Power Laws

Ross has a fascinating post on Participation Power Laws – along with an interesting diagram. What Ross is getting at is what so many companies miss in creating blogs. It isn’t about the posts and publishing as much as it is about engagement with the community.

When users participate in high enagement activities, connecting with one another, a different kind of value is being created. But my core point isn’t just the difference between these forms of group intelligence — but actually how the co-exist in the best communities.

    Good stuff, Andy. I used the diagram and quoted Mayfield in my personal company-internal blog. The Long Tail concept is pretty powerful, I have seen it explored on Trendwatching.com — I think it speaks volumes to how the world of work is being redefined and the kinds of careers our children will persue. I continue to be impressed by the scope of topics and useful information you present. Keep it up.
