***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I taught an undergraduate class in Family Communication where the students had to do a Family SNA as their final project. They had to map out family/friends/school/work ties and the intersections amongst all alters. They were all hand drawn... about 50% of the students used a concentric circle structure, the rest had an "emergent" design. The student was ego. If Bart Simpson had been my student he might have turned in something like this... http://www.orgnet.com/simpsons.gif ;-) Valdis On Oct 18, 2005, at 3:36 PM, Chris McCarty wrote: > I'm working on an article comparing personal network visualization to > respondent's drawing of their personal network.
