A concept from architecture which is also used for online collaborative communities

Intimacy Gradient = organizing spaces in a sequence which corresponds to their degrees of privateness and openness

Comment by Ross Mayfield


"The ideal core/periphery structure affords a densely linked core and a dynamic perhiphery. One pattern for social software that supports this is an intimacy gradient (privacy/openness), to allow the core some privacy for backchannelling."
