Nancy White picks up on one note of dissonance regarding Scoble's 'starfish': "The starfish focuses on communications channels, while typically I approach community technology stewardship from an activities approach - what sorts of activities does my community need to be together and do what it wants to do together." I pick up on another: most of Scoble's 'arms' point to commercial services - while so much of my own reach is in the form of non-commercial services, open source applications, or even aspects of my own (hand-built) website. Also, I'm a little uncomfortable with the 'tech steward' language.
