***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Colleagues, I have a student building a tool that will import network data from Wikipedia (and other MediaWiki sites) into NodeXL. NodeXL already has other importers that grab network data (and other relevant statistics) from Twitter, Email, YouTube, and Flickr, but nothing yet for wikis. Our question is this: What networks should we allow people to import and what other statistics about the Edges or Vertices should we capture? Here are some examples: a) The user-to-wiki page bimodal network that links a person to a page when they've edited the page b) The derivative user-to-user network based on pages they've co-edited c) The derivative page-to-page network based on shared users who've edited both pages We haven't focused on the page-to-page hyperlink network, since existing tools such as VOSON can capture those. Other ideas and thoughts would be welcome. Also, we're always looking for people to build data importers from new social media sites, so let us know if you or a student are willing to do so.
