People see tribes forming all over.
- Tribes, the first and forever form : http://www.rand.org/pubs/working_papers/WR433/
- There's TribeNet, of course.

- RichardBarbrook recently criticised "tribalist" claims (in the context of GiftCulture) as being a symptom of a kind of left-wing anti-modernist fantasy.
: We should probably take time to note differences between tribes in the traditional sense and networks that organize around wikis, for sharing knowledge and services on the web or YASN groups.
