Mapping the culture of an online community

James Robertson of Column Two points to a fun report from Patrick Lambe that describes the "archetypes" present in the Act-KM online community (mailing list), Mapping the Culture of an Online Community (pdf).  The drawings of each type are almost as good as the breakdown into these types:

  • The Mediator
  • The Energy Vampire
  • The Lurker
  • The Angry Little Man
  • The Beginner
  • The Hostage
  • The Backstabber
  • The Professor
  • The Sophist
  • The Visionary
  • The Guru
