Cyber Anthropology: A Unified View of Communities ... - Lithosphere Community | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Michael Wu, Ph.D. is Lithium's Principal Scientist of Analytics, digging into the complex dynamics of social interaction and group behavior in onl
luiy's insight:

Today I will give you a unified view of communities and social networks in an attempt to understand how these two social structures fit together. This post is a little more abstract and theoretical in nature – in comparison to previous posts – but I believe it will give you a novel perspective on the inner workings of social media.

 

The Social Networks inside Communities

As we’ve learned, most of the strong relationships in our personal social network (a.k.a.personal network) were developed in communities that were once part of our lives. Figure 1 illustrates the dynamics of a person (hypothetically Bob, the red dot in Figure 1) joining a community (yellow).

 

From personal experience, you probably recognize the fact that when someone joins a community, the rest of his personal network does not necessarily join with him. That is, your friends generally do not follow you everywhere, at least not immediately, and not all of them. Why is this? The main reason is because people have different interests and they have communities of their own. Upon joining the community and interacting with other community members, Bob would create weak ties (dotted lines). If the interactions were mutually desirable and have the proper environment to develop over time, then some of these emerging weak ties will grow into strong relationships, which will ultimately become part of Bob’s personal social network....

Mapping Science - Places & Spaces: Mapping Science | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Places & Spaces: Mapping Science is meant to inspire cross-disciplinary discussion on how to best track and communicate human activity and scientific progress on a global scale. It has two components: the physical part supports the close inspection of high quality reproductions of maps for display at conferences and education centers; the online counterpart provides links to a selected series of maps and their makers along with detailed explanations of how these maps work. The exhibit is a 10-year effort. Each year, 10 new maps are added resulting in 100 maps total in 2014.

Collaboration as an Intangible Asset - Robert J. Thomas - The Conversation - Harvard Business Review

Collaboration as an Intangible Asset - Robert J. Thomas - The Conversation - Harvard Business Review | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

There is no line on the balance sheet for "ability to innovate" or "skill at managing brand."

Here is the Social Network Analysis Money Quote in this HArvard Businerss Review piece:

Case in point, SNA conducted at Novartis helped reveal a pattern of communication — and the existence of parallel innovation efforts — that made it possible to combine teams before they reached a crucial stall point in the development of a new vaccine. At a major retail bank, early signals of an emerging rift between factions — manifested in very different networks of information sharing — made it possible to save an acquisition before it came apart. And a rapidly growing pharmaceutical manufacturer discovered through network analysis that management bottlenecks were holding back critical decisions and alienating lower level employees.

Bernard Stiegler : « Nous entrons dans l’ère du travail contributif » - #fablab | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Fab' lab', imprimantes 3D... "Le consumérisme a vécu", assène le philosophe pour qui, motivés par nos seuls centres d'intérêt, nous allons changer de mode de travail.

 

Les bureaux de Bernard Stiegler font face au Centre Pompidou, sous les toits de Paris. C’est pour son célèbre voisin que le philosophe a fondé l’Institut de recherche et d’innovation (IRI), afin d’« anticiper les mutations de l’offre et de la consommation culturelle permises par les nouvelles technologies numériques ».

 

Mais dans l’esprit de l’enseignant-auteur-chef d’entreprise, tout est lié : culture, consommation, technique, travail, politique. Pour lui, le modèle consumériste se meurt, comme celui du progrès permanent. Tout s’automatise. ....

[INTERVIEW] Grégory Chatonsky, l'art comme une archéologie du futur

[INTERVIEW] Grégory Chatonsky, l'art comme une archéologie du futur | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

L’archéologie nous apprend qui nous étions et surtout qui nous sommes. De ces traces du passé nous pouvons envisager l’avenir. L’artiste français Grégory Chatonsky l’a bien compris et va plus loin. Avec Telofossils, son exposition monographique actuellement présentée au musée d’art contemporain de Taipei, il s’attelle à imaginer ce que pourrait être l’archéologie de notre société. Quels pourraient être les vestiges d’un monde tendant à la dématérialisation ?

 

Les technologies ont joué un rôle important dans ce phénomène. Si elles sont au coeur du travail de Chatonsky tant dans la forme que dans le fond, elles y sont toujours traitées d’un point de vue humain et sensible. L’utilisation des technologies de pointe dans ses installations n’est jamais gratuite mais souligne la relation étroite et complexe que notre société a noué avec elles au cours de ces dernières décennies.

 

Ce désir d’abondance et d’accumulation nous mènera-t-il à notre perte ? Il est trop tôt pour le savoir, mais avant la fin annoncée de notre espèce, nous avons demandé à Grégory Chatonsky de nous en dire plus sur son travail, le futur et la destruction.

So when you map your world, check these issues:

 

Are you happy with how diverse it is? If it is not diverse you will find it hard to use crowd sourcing etc and you will be too deep in your own echo chamber

 

Do you know who your key connectors are and do you care enough about them? For they give you the best access to the sub networks?

 

Do you know who counts the most in each network? Again this is all about leverage.

Spread of Academic Success in a High School Social Network

Spread of Academic Success in a High School Social Network | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Application of social network analysis to education has revealed how social network positions of K-12 students correlate with their behavior and academic achievements. However, no study has been conducted on how their social network influences their academic progress over time. Here we investigated correlations between high school students’ academic progress over one year and the social environment that surrounds them in their friendship network. We found that students whose friends’ average GPA (Grade Point Average) was greater (or less) than their own had a higher tendency toward increasing (or decreasing) their academic ranking over time, indicating social contagion of academic success taking place in their social network.

De la contre-culture à la cyberculture

De la contre-culture à la cyberculture | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Quand Place de la toile m’est échue il y a cinq ans maintenant, je suis allé voir Dominique Cardon pour qu’il me conseille quelques lectures de base sur les questions numérique. Et il m’a dit tout de suite : « il faut absolument lire Fred Turner, De la contreculture à la cyberculture (2006), c’est un livre essentiel. » Et j’avoue honteusement ne pas l’avoir fait, le livre était gros, disponible en anglais seulement, j’ai été rebuté. Par la suite, la référence au livre de Turner est très souvent apparue au détour d’un texte ou d’un propos, rendant chaque jour sa lecture plus urgente. Lecture encore retardée car entre temps, Hervé Le Crosnier m’a annoncé que sa maison d’édition en avait lancé la traduction en français. Paresseusement, j’ai attendu cette traduction, qui vient donc de paraître aux éditions C&F, sous le titre Aux sources de l’utopie numérique. Et là, je le dis sans aucune exagération, cette lecture m’a émerveillé. Le livre de Fred Turner est extraordinaire.
