Ah well the classic references on this topic are Katie
Hafner's stuff on the WELL community in the SF-Bay
area.  Some of the online members met offline - with
some weird results. . . way before chat rooms became
popular via WWW.

The article:

The book: 
The Well: A Story of Love, Death & Real Life in the
Seminal Online Community (2001).

I guess our annual meetings have a bit of the
online-offline dynamic . . . .
