Thick Book with a thourough description of Online Community,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Virtual Community: Homesteading on the Electronic Frontier (Taschenbuch)If you want to know about Online Communities in their first years this book gives a good and worthy description of it.
But this is the problem, it is only a description, there is not much of an analysis, and this could be boring. The best is the last chapter, it was written for the 2000 edition. There you can learn a bit about the sociological background. If you are interested in scientific literature, you probably want the "Cybersociety" of Steven G. Jones. There you find the phenomenon not described but analysed, which makes a big difference.
But Rheingold has writing skills and he makes reading fun, although not too enlightening.
