***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear all, Following up on this topic of virtual networks and/or online activism, does anyone know of any network software that would enable me to map a network of senders and recipients out of a dataset of 130,000 emails? For perspective, I can manipulate the data into any format: Outlook, Thunderbird, TXT and so on. I just want to know whether someone has already developed such a software program or whether I should recruit someone to help me develop some software for this purpose.
