Social Networking: Five Sites You Need to Know

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Fred Stutzman[Edit][Delete]: Social Networking: Five Sites You Need to Know, Unit Structures [Edit][Delete] December 6, 2006
Some social networking buzz. The five sites aren't what you might expect. "In my opinion," writes the author, " these trends are really telling. Social networking is absolutely here to stay - this is not simply a 'phenomenon'." I agree - the phenomeonon may be refined, but the idea of creating systems that help people connect with each other will not go away. More...

Semantic Analytics on Social Networks

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Boanerges Aleman-Meza and others[Edit][Delete]: Semantic Analytics on Social Networks, WWW 2006 [Edit][Delete] November 23, 2006
This is a great paper. The discussion is directed toward the use of links within a social network to detect a potential conflict of interest. This would help editors select reviewers for journal articles (OK, so the authors are still rooted in the old world - let it go). Two networks, FOAF and the bibliographic literature in Computer Science research, are used. What we get in this paper is a nice series of steps (and cool diagram) that characterize such semantic analyses:
1. Obtaining high quality data
2. Data preparation
3. Entity disambiguation
4. Metadata and ontology representation
5. Querying and inference techniques
6. Visualization
7. Evaluation
It's interesting to see just how many real and potential conflicts of interest appear among the authors. More...

Social Network Sites: My Definition

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Danah Boyd[Edit][Delete]: Social Network Sites: My Definition, Many2Many [Edit][Delete] November 21, 2006
For Val, this link to Danah Boyd on the definition of social network sites (I know that's not exactly 'social software' but it's close enough). Something like this definition is needed because with the recent popularity of social software everything and its dog is being called social software or a social networking site (I can just imagine getting in my email: Purina Cat Chow - social networking for your pets). Boyd writes, "A 'social network site' is a category of websites with profiles, semi-persistent public commentary on the profile, and a traversable publicly articulated social network displayed in relation to the profile." or as I wrote (see the comments), "The point about social software is that it creates persistent links between users, and through these persistent links, a community is formed. Moreover, the ownership and control of these links - who is linked, and who isn't - is in the hands of the user. Thus, these links are asymmetrical - you might link to me, but I might not link to you". More...

Networks are Groups

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Darren Kuropatwa[Edit][Delete]: Networks are Groups, A Difference [Edit][Delete] November 13, 2006
Darren Kuropatwa argue that there is no distinction between networks and groups. "The edublogging community is a group of people with a common profession that have certain attitudes and interests in common," he writes. "Ultimately, we are all interested in the same thing: improving the education of the children in our lives." That common interest would make it a group, were it the case. But it is not a common interest (many of the people I have worked with are adult educators, others are primarily technologists, and many are interested in 'learning' but not 'education'). That sort of proclamation of 'a common interest' is just the sort of thing I have been trying to guard people against. More...

Networking Instinct

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Gayle Duncan[Edit][Delete]: The Networking Instinct, The Empire Club of Canada Speeches [Edit][Delete] October 6, 2006
On reading some of my recent work on networks John Duncan from Regina set me this speech by his brother to the Empire Club in 2001. The speech looks at some of the early achievements - such as Schoolnet's witing of the last school on Pictou Island - and embraces the network philosophy explicitly: "Like Brockman, I fervently believe that what he calls distributed networked intelligence is the greatest monument to our species' experiment with civilisationbuilding so far. More...

Potholes, Machine Learning, and Compelling Content

By Eric Stoller. It's no secret that universities create a lot of content for dissemination on digital channels. Tweets, Facebook updates, Instagram Stories, LinkedIn updates, TikTok posts, and YouTube videos are just a few of the ways in which institutions share their stories. More...
