There is an interesting essay, The Migration of Social Exchange, recently posted on Hyperallergic by James Holland. He mentions my Databody piece from spring 2001 (yes, prior to 9/11). Nice that it is still relevant after over a decade. This is a thoughtful piece that ruminates on the changing landscape of what it means to be social.
