***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** NYTimes article about SPM and "Strength of Weak Ties", 3/9/03 Hi everyone, This is my first posting. I joined the listserve a few weeks ago. I am a practitioner not an academic. My organization, Software Product Marketing (SPM) eGroup is experimenting with various internet-based social networking practices and software. We were featured today in the Jobs section of the NYTimes [NYTimes article "A Little Help From Friends of Friends", March 9, 2003 By ANTHONY DePALMA] http://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/09/jobs/09HOME.html or go to our website to avoid the registration process www.softwareproductmarketing.com. If you are interested in learning more about how we implemented "The Strength of Weak Ties" on SPM and our plans for increasing participation by adding identity/reputation there is additional relevant information in the "About" and "Strength of Weak Ties" sections. http://www.softwareproductmarketing.com/about_spm/default.asp http://www.softwareproductmarketing.com/about_spm/pg-weak_ties.asp Any comments, ideas, suggestions very much welcomed.
