Dave Pollard has a piece up about the optimal size of groups. From the boing boing item on this Open Source Hardware bank say they've got about 70 lenders so far. Zed Shaw's piece likewise suggested to me that the Freehacker's Union would probably be about that size. Pollard building on Christopher Allen's posts suggests an enterprise group of between 25-75.

I thought about your Marker's Market. I probably have the wrong idea of what you're trying to do, but my thought is that the number of users of the site would be in this range.

In Shaw's piece he suggested: "Organized using simple software that’s open."

I don't have a clue what the simple software would be. And the long and short of it is I assumed a greater number of users of the Maker's Market site.
