I often steal links from Bill Seitz, but this one I'm pretty sure he got from me. :-)
Good point that this isn't a Creative Network in Mayfield's sense. This is a micro-fan-base of a boutique artist.
I was wrong. Bill comments : Nope, it was a free assocation from BillSeitz:z2004-04-03-FullTimeNetwork - I remembered the lines from ages ago and tracked it down, then related it (and the other fresh stuff from today) to WeakTies, StrongTies, EcosystemOfNetworks, etc....
