I heard the mission of this group defined as a “make the web social” this past week by a long-term participant. I don’t know whether everybody here would agree with this, as it is rather ambitious, but …

If we take this mission at face value, that would mean that any website — from an infrequently visited single page to any gigantic site — should be able to become social, based on the same protocols. And interact with any other all hours of all days. This would dwarf even Bob’s large numbers above, although I am at loss to propose a factor.

(P.S. I like ambitious.)
