Ian Dickson talks about the psychology in software in relation to Reed's Law (2^n) where he distinguishes Potential Groups and Actual Groups (Real people). Lin is here: http://www.emint.org/papers/iandickson/reedslaw.htm

He also promotes CommKit in http://commkit.com/ckfe2a.cfm?Whichone=9&flag=1

which can perhaps address the issue of the Dunbar Number.
