> The nTag organisers were also able to map interactions from the data they

> I would be interested in reading your paper as I also have an interest in

> web site on some applications:

> www.optimice.com.au in the "publications" and "industry network maps"
> areas.
> We also have developed tools for traditional survey based SNA data
> collection: www.onasurveys.com.
