The real question is how to monetize web 2.0 affinity networks.. That is still somewhat hazy.

About how to create a web 2.0 affinity network, I would say a good platform + active & satisfied user + good product would cover most of it.

We are not lacking of platforms - Blogs / News sites/ Wiki....

The missing flow is to create good product --> having satisfied customers --> some of them are active to feedback and post opinion on the platform. Then the problem will be related to the Network Effect.
