***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** Hi Is there maybe out there work in progrss about the employee behavior in the case of Enron after their breakdown? They did a lot of networking via the internet (as far as I could see) and offline (which I guess from the info online). Other exapmles should be in the NewEconomy last year, when all those breakdowns occurred. Hope that helps a little bit. Regards Bettina -- Dipl.-Phys.
