There are several. Village. Crowd. Team. Family. Mob. Congregation. Is that what you had in mind?

Also Tribe, Pack, Glee Club, Convention, Posse, Race, Nation, and Bunch O' Guys On the Streetcorner.

: : We'd been through those, thanks. Just wondered if there was something aimed specifically at Humans rather than small sections of people.

: A concentration of thinkers?

Pardon me while I ramble. The problem is, we "label" groups of humans based on the function of the group. Team = group with a common goal. Family = related people. Mob = group up to no good. But you want a label just based on the fact that it is a group of human animals. Like flock of birds, herd of cattle, a blank of humans. Does that sum it up?
