hello,
          i do not think jeff was claiming that social networks is just 
the science of the individual. it is concerned about both structural 
matters - structures and evolution etc - and their impacts on individual 
actions. of course, actor attributes affect networks structure and 
change. i have often harbored the fantasy of showing up at a physicist 
convention and asking them about interviewing their molecules. rightly, 
they would think i was insane. but i would bet they would miss the real 
point would be that indiviuals are not molecules.
