[Freedombox-discuss] Interesting comments on distributed social networking
Exactly what do you mean by 'grow virally' it's all very well saying that
but on practise it's actually incredibly difficult to do deliberately with
any measure of success. I don't mean to appear rude but in my day job I
have to spec projects for marketeers and alarm bells start to ring if they
say they want to create something viral.
