Everyone is an expert these days. Social Network Analysis [SNA] is a
hot field and people are jumping on the bandwagon. They read a few
articles/web pages/books and hang out their shingle with little or no
experience in actually doing SNA.
The SNA article below has errors and it appears to be sourced from many
the pages on the WWW that discuss David Krackhardt's kite network.
As a blogger, he should know, you always point/link to your sources!
He changed the names in the network, and some of the links to make his
network appear unique from the kite network. Unfortunately, as a
network newbie, he did not realize that changing links changes the
network! He followed the argument on the other kite network pages not
realizing his changed network was no longer in sync with those
A little quiz for the network newbies... which centrality did he err on?
Anyway, this is useful -- it will make a great addition to my
SNA training when I discuss quality of data and analysis.
