Facebook et al. are also cathedrals. Their services are organized differently, more bazaar-like, but they're definitely cathedrals.

Thanks Homer, I see the point you are making. FB et al do indeed make the Bazaar feel a little more 'respectable'. And it occurred to me whilst writing the post that Apple and the Appstore are probably the most Cathedral-like of all. So maybe the Cathedral and The Bazaar are merging, and both become better for it...?
