    Anybody know any good books on these topics ?

    I'm esp interested in how/if Bulletin boards pick up on new info/ideas and feed them back into the media.

    A general search under virtual ethnography should return some hits from anthropology, ill post some links when im at my computer. Barbara O' Connor published an article in the irish journal of sociology last year on womens discussion forums which may be of interest. Most society/technology readers will contain chapters. For a more abstract context, manual castels is probably essential reading for anyone interested in this area. Did you have anything more specific in mind?
