Thoughts on #SNA and online #learning | #intelligencecollective | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Following the previous post... The structural paradigm of  Social Network Analysis (SNA) with its constitutive theory and methods, began to emerge around the 1930s, applied and influenced by a broa...

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge, Marinella De Simone
luiy's insight:

The connections within nodes in a network facilitate exchange of “resources”  which can be influenced by the quantity and quality of the linkages and interactions. Looking at online educational networks through a SNA lens is a way to establish wether the ways in which individuals connect with a particular environment may influence their access to information and knowledge. As Rita Kop states “the Web is portrayed as a democratic network on which peer to peer interaction might lead to a creative explosion and participative culture of activity” (Kop, 2012 p3) but how is this potential being exploited in education? What are the processes beyond this interaction and how can they be used to facilitate students access to information, knowledge and ideas?

 

The potential of social media in forming networks, extending students knowledge and translating this into academic achievement is impacted by a multitude of elements such as individuals’ attitudes (Morrison, 2002), University environment and socialisation processes (Yu et al., 2010). Other mechanisms influencing this process may be the particular educational practices and experiences, the success of connections, the dynamics in which participants negotiate the structure of the network and exchange practices and many others which can not be controlled.

 

This analysis can be enriched by Bordieau’s concept of “social capital”, which introduces a set of dynamics between the social dimension, the identity dimension (habitus) and the individual’s practice. In this system of reciprocal influences it is interesting to look at the transformation processes and effects of elements such as “weak ties”, “brokers”, “latent connections” and “structural holes” in the information flow within a network.

About the Lab 

The College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln established the Drone Journalism Lab in November 2011 as part of a broad digital journalism and innovation strategy. Journalism is evolving rapidly, and journalism education must evolve with it, teaching new tools and storytelling strategies while remaining true to the core principles and ethics of journalism. The lab was started by Professor Matt Waite as a way to explore how drones could be used for reporting.

 

In the lab, students and faculty will build drone platforms, use them in the field and research the ethical, legal and regulatory issues involved in using pilotless aircraft to do journalism.

Semantic Web Agents
luiy's insight:

SEAGENT semantic web agent research group does research about Semantic Web, Linked Data and Multi-agent Systems. The original idea behind the Semantic Web is making software agents more intelligent on the web. In this direction, we are working on tools, techniques and methodologies for Semantic Web application development. 

 

From 2002 to 2011, SEAGENT research group mainly focused on the development of SEAGENT multi-agent framework. SEAGENT has been used as a tool in a graduate course to teach MAS development since 2006 in Ege University, and several industrial and academic projects have been developed on top of it. Then, while our research direction in this field was focusing on goal-directed semantic agents, adaptive multi-agent organizations, and role-based multi-agent systems, we started to focus on linked data technologies. Linked data paves the way of making applications consuming data from lots of sources. Currently, SEAGENT research group has industrial and academic projects on linked data and open data. Since open data movement needs to be integrated with linked data, we try to create the examples of linked open data in Turkey.

Anonymous in Context: The #Politics and Power behind the Mask | #socialchange

Since 2010, digital direct action, including leaks, hacking and mass protest, has become a regular feature of political life on the Internet. This paper considers the source, strengths and weakness of this activity through an in-depth analysis of Anonymous, the protest ensemble that has been adept at magnifying issues, boosting existing — usually oppositional — movements and converting amorphous discontent into a tangible form.
luiy's insight:

This paper, the third in the Internet Governance Paper Series, examines the intersecting elements that contribute to Anonymous’ contemporary geopolitical power: its ability to land media attention, its bold and recognizable aesthetics, its participatory openness, the misinformation that surrounds it and, in particular, its unpredictability.

#Gephi plugin for depth-first searching for closed cycles on graphs | #SNA

#Gephi plugin for depth-first searching for closed cycles on graphs | #SNA | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
This free plugin for gephi traverses the active graph searching for closed walks, cycles and cliques. It can be used on both directed and undirected graphs.
luiy's insight:

This Gephi plugin traverses the active graph searching for closed walks, cycles and cliques. The search is made using the popular depth-first order search algorithm, using a standard single stack implementation made popular by Robert Sedgewick. Although this is very common in graph searching, there wasn’t a plugin for Gephi performing just this simple task and no more in a efficient way. Some features:

 

The plugin can be used on both directed and undirected graphs. In the first case, close walks (cycles) are hunted, while cliques in the latter; Reports include a distribution of the founded cycles by size; No use of external libraries: just 18k for the whole package; Asynchronous and interruptible task; Written in a pure OOP flavour, using Gephi APIs.

luiy's insight:

Facebook’s key problem for many people has been what academics sometimes call “context-collapse,” which is the sense that Facebook sometimes feels like an extended Thanksgiving dinner where everyone you have ever known is at the table. This is an identity-constraining environment as it’s hard to know how to address such a large crowd at the same time. People have been grappling with this for a long time and have come up with a variety of solutions, including fleeing to Twitter & Instagram and, yes, Whatsapp.

 

Social scientists have long been trying to communicate this to technology companies: it is normal, natural and healthy to have different communication needs at different levels of one’s social network. One wonders if, early on, Mark Zuckerberg had listened to social scientists rather than declaring “having two identities for yourself is an example of a lack of integrity”, would he now have $16 billion more in his pocket?

Introduction to Circos, Features and Uses | #dataviz #datascience | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

Circos is a software package for visualizing data and information. It visualizes data in a circular layout — this makes Circos ideal for exploring relationships between objects or positions. There are other reasons why a circular layout is advantageous, not the least being the fact that it is attractive.

 

Circos is ideal for creating publication-quality infographics and illustrations with a high data-to-ink ratio, richly layered data and pleasant symmetries. You have fine control each element in the figure to tailor its focus points and detail to your audience.

 

Circos is flexible. Although originally designed for visualizing genomic data, it can create figures from data in any field. If you have data that describes relationships or multi-layered annotations of one or more scales, Circos is for you.

 

Circos can be automated. It is controlled by plain-text configuration files, which makes it easily incorporated into data acquisition, analysis and reporting pipelines (a data pipeline is a multi-step process in which data is analyzed by multiple and typically independent tools, each passing their output as the input to the next step).

How To Make Twitter More Fair and Competitive

The story of my experience on Twitter is the story that is celebrated—but rarely the case for most people. When I joined Twitter in 2009 it was like showing up to a half-settled frontier town. I could talk with people who would normally never talk to me, I could gain a following in fields where I was years younger than most, and I could do this all from a laptop in my underwear.

Twitter was magical in 2009 because the platform was getting a daily flood of users of all stripes eager to find accounts to follow. We’ll never be able to get back to that era of Twitter, but there are a ton of things Twitter can do to help users....

The justice system is not the most transparent and data friendly domain. Quite the contrary. That’s why it’s so exciting to see that researchers like Sergio Puig from Stanford and Enric Torrents from MIT are trying to bring data analysis techniques to legal studies. Can social network analysis and graphs help improve justice systems?

It's economically feasible too. The average access speed in the U.S. is now under 10 megabits per second and costs around $40-$60. Verizon FiOS charges $300 a month for 500 megabit service. Yet Google and others charge just $70 a month for a full gigabit connection, download and upload. VTel in Springfield, Vt., charges $35. Gigabit in Hong Kong was $26 way back in 2011.
