I present an example of an approach for generating optimal messages to seed 
or change the discussion in an online community:

Danowski, J. A. (1982).  A network-based content analysis methodology for 
computer-mediated communication: An           illustration with a computer 
bulletin board, in M. Burgoon (Ed.), Communication Yearbook 5 (pp. 
904-925). New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction Books.
