Yes, extremely interesting.

And with some of that in mind (particularly the 'core community' bit),  
should we be thinking of having some way of highlighting/rewarding  
members of the 'core community'?

(It's kinda similar to /.'s way of having those with higher Karma  
being priviledged to speak a little louder than those without - your  
posts start off on a higher score)

Now we do do a bit of that already with the number of cubes being  
related to number of articles contributed
but I'm wondering if we should be doing more?

Some useful UI patterns for that here:
