Community Networks versus Social Networks

Google (GOOG) has just bought Jaiku, a Finland-based mobile IM and presence company.
In the recent period many articles has touched upon sites like Jaiku, FaceBook, and LinkedIn etc and labeled them "social networks". But in my opinion they can't be classified as social network, but more as "free end-user driven virtual community networks" as real contact between members are rare.
Real social networks are a description of a "professional real life and closed company specific social networks" where real contacts between members are what the software displays and analyse on.

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

Mia Blichfeldt

Sometimes you get lucky. I shot this natural portrait of Mia Blichfeldt - a very gifted and up-coming badminton player at a private party - just a month before she became the youngest Danish Champion in Badminton in the senior league - and she is only 16!

Of course you can find many photos of Mia "in action", but only very few where she is being just herself - outside the badminton arena.
