This is true. I have an article forthcoming in Social Forces (June) on discussion
groups of managers, though the network-effects paper, which might be more
relevant to you, is still under review. There is some work in the small groups
field that might be relevant, especially
Robinson, Dawn T. and James W. Balkwell. 1995. "Density, Transitivity, and
Diffuse Status in Task-Oriented Groups." Social Psychology Quarterly 58:241-54.
The paper I have under review is available upon request, inscribed upon a
$21 bill -- sorry, Boston/NPR humor.

Re: recording human conversations
You might also look into the work of David Gibson at Harvard, who I
know has done extensive research on conversations amongst innovation team
members at a major international bank.
I was wondering
if anyone was aware of any work done to record human conversations (like
at a conference) for SNA? I know there has been work done analyzing videos,
but I was looking for other approaches.
