Nomic World: By the players, for the players

http://www.shirky.com/writings/nomic.html

Another article by Clay Shirky that continues the reasoning from "A group is its own worst enemy" ( http://shirky.com/writings/group_enemy.html ).

Do you have a comment or question about these articles?  What sort of response are you looking for?

This was more a "heads up" kind of post really. The "worst enemy" article seemed to be well liked by this audience, so I thought I'd give this a nod.

btw., this group seems to be doing a torough job. Reach for this site is down 34% according to http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traffic_details?&range=2y&size=medium&compare_sites=&url=http://joelonsoftware.com#top

I attribute the drop to lack of recent H1B posts.

I think that the main reason that traffic to joelonsoftware.com it's down is that Joel isn't posting as much.  I tend to come straight to the forum (at discuss.fogcreek.com) these days and if you look that up, traffic has increased:
