***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I'm drafting The Networked Revolution chapter for the Rainie-Wellman _Networked_ book. Most pressing: Can anyone suggest statistical indicators (or even qualitative ones) for the turn from groups to networks in western societies? Also, please note that we also have chapters (among others) on: Networked Families: have lots of marriage, family size, women working indicators; Networked Relationships: Community Lost > Liberated; Bowling Alone/Networked; Social Isolation/Connectivity in America; Connected Lives Networked Work: multiple work teams Network Info: is the 2-step flow modified. Please be hard-nosed. I have enough vague speculations myself;-) Barry Wellman _______________________________________________________________________ S.D.
