I actually just developed a workflow for running statnet on the Amazon EC2 clusters. Because I'm no linux power user sysadmin, it's far from perfect and I need to test a few things. But I'll try to document and share it in the next week or so.
Brian, you are welcome! I really enjoyed your presentations.
But I was actually looking for "ready" results and articles. Besides usual lack of time the greatest problem is that I run the models in statnet on my Asus eeePC 1000, so you can imagine, how much time it takes to deal with my own data (1200 nodes). However, I hope that soon I'll solve this problem by getting remote access to more powerful harware, so that I'll be able to run other datasets too.
Thanks for reply.

Mark Newman has a variety of datasets on scientific coauthorship:
Jure Leskovec also has a number of scientific coauthorship datasets:
Thanks for the endorsement :)

I was running ERGM models on my data, but after Brian Keegan's reports at Sunbelt I decided to make some comparisons. In one of his reports, Brian compared models of clandestine networks in MMORPG Everquest with real world drug-tracking networks and found some similarities.
So, I decided to compare my models of blogs in sociological community of LiveJournal.com with something from real world. Of course, I can always refer to Skvoretz & Faust article "Comparing networks across space and time, size and species", but I'd like something more relevant to scientific networks, like citation, co-authorship, collaboration, etc.
Does anyone have any references?
Thanks in advance.
