***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi all, Barry rocked the audience at the ACM Web Science 2011. I sincerely hope you consider engaging with ACM Web Science 2012. A small correction to the dates of the ACM Web Science 2012 conference in Evanston. It is June 21-24, 2012 - not June 12-24 , 2012 (I am not that indefatigable) .... Have a great weekend!

At the end of which the indefatigable Nosh Contractor announced that he (and colleagues) will host the next ACM Web Science conference in Evanston, June 12-24 2012 (Kellogg School, Northwestern U), right after the Network Science conference June 19-22 at the same venue. If you're wondering what "web science" is, it's mostly work by computer scientists eager to build more social science understanding into their research. Much like the early days of the social networks network (INSNA) and the internet researchers of AOIR, it's heavily weighted towards eager young students, many of whom are either building apps or are doing studies of Internet use and users. Steffan Stabb and York Sure led the current conference. Nosh Contractor, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Dame Wendy Hall, Peter Monge, Janet Fulk have been active.
