Rooted Planning: Amplifying Local Community Networks

Rooted Planning: Amplifying Local Community Networks | networks and network weaving | Scoop.it
“I take a lot of my learning and inspiration around networks from the field of permaculture - the notion in sustainable agriculture that you're not just being called to intervene in a system in a mechanical way, but to honor what's already in place, the root system that's already there. You can think of the social equivalence of that.” - Curtis Ogden

In this week’s episode of The Move podcast, Curtis Ogden of the Interaction Institute for Social Change likened best practices for planners and civic designers to intervening in agriculture in a way that honors the root systems already in place. Working within the complex social processes and networks between people in cities is not so different. The goal of the planner, according to Curtis, is thus to amplify the networks that already exist in communities, and to allow these local social forms to guide sustainable and

Communication in Online Social Networks Fosters Cultural Isolation

Online social networks play an increasingly important role in communication between friends, colleagues, business partners, and family members. This development sparked public and scholarly debate about how these new platforms affect dynamics of cultural diversity. Formal models of cultural dissemination are powerful tools to study dynamics of cultural diversity but they are based on assumptions that represent traditional dyadic, face-to-face communication, rather than communication in online social networks. Unlike in models of face-to-face communication, where actors update their cultural traits after being influenced by one of their network contacts, communication in online social networks is often characterized by a one-to-many structure, in that users emit messages directly to a large number of network contacts. Using analytical tools and agent-based simulation, we show that this seemingly subtle difference can have profound implications for emergent dynamics of cultural dissemination. In particular, we show that within the framework of our model online communication fosters cultural diversity to a larger degree than offline communication and it increases chances that individuals and subgroups become culturally isolated from their network contacts.

From Louvain to Leiden: guaranteeing well-connected communities

Community detection is often used to understand the structure of large and complex networks. One of the most popular algorithms for uncovering community structure is the so-called Louvain algorithm. We show that this algorithm has a major defect that largely went unnoticed until now: the Louvain algorithm may yield arbitrarily badly connected communities. In the worst case, communities may even be disconnected, especially when running the algorithm iteratively. In our experimental analysis, we observe that up to 25% of the communities are badly connected and up to 16% are disconnected. This may present serious issues in subsequent analyses. To address this problem, we introduce the Leiden algorithm. We prove that the Leiden algorithm yields communities that are guaranteed to be connected. In addition, we prove that, when the Leiden algorithm is applied iteratively, it converges to a partition in which all subsets of all communities are locally optimally assigned. Furthermore, by relying on a fast local move approach, the Leiden algorithm runs faster than the Louvain algorithm. We demonstrate the performance of the Leiden algorithm for several benchmark and real-world networks. We find that the Leiden algorithm is faster than the Louvain algorithm and uncovers better partitions, in addition to providing explicit guarantees. Based on our results, we conclude that the Leiden algorithm is preferable to the Louvain algorithm.

Relationships: Teacher's "I Need" Box Gets Kids to Ask For Help

Relationships: Teacher's "I Need" Box Gets Kids to Ask For Help | networks and network weaving | Scoop.it

It would be great for networks to have an "I need" section on their website... would be nice to have a little wordpress widget where people could easily post their needs. 

 

 

Julia Brown was determined to get it right this school year, so she tried something new – a cardboard "I Need" box. It began as a way for her students to ask for help without having to come directly to her. They'd write it on a card and leave it in the box, and she'd get back to them before the week was over.
