hi all,

wie did such an analysis.
Our example was the british mailbase system. We included 1321 Mailinglists 
with over 136.000 Members.
We considered the amount of the overlapping memership in different 
categories of mailing lists as a measure for tie-stregth.
After that, we did a blockmodel analysis.

Unfortunately the study appeared in german language.

Christian Stegbauer und Alexander Rausch, 2001, "Neue Wissensproduktion 
durch das Internet? Vernetzung von wissenschaftlichen Diskussionsformen am 
Beispiel des MAILBASE-Systems."
(The new production of knowldege through the internet. The network of 
scientific discussion fora examlyfied by the MAILBASE-System).
S.163-180, in Gerd Bender (Hrsg.), Neue Formen der Wissenserzeugung. 
Frankfurt/New York : Campus, 2001.

If sombodey is interested in the study, pease mail me.

regards
Christian
