From Cyborg Anthropology

"Soft Architecture is a place in which structure is defined by memory. The lines dividing interior and exterior are broken down, creating an uncanny relationship between organic forms and manufactured materials. Fueled by a rigorous investigation of a remembered space and time, the "real" becomes hyper-real. Shifts in scale and vibrating fields of contrasting colors result in a customized utopia" [1].

Social networks are defined by soft architectures, in which inside and outside often change places. Wikis are a form of soft architecture because they are both structured and expandable.
