***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I've tried to connect people listed for certain topics such as "musician" or "snowboard" into a twitter ontology of interests here: http://twitterresearcher.wordpress.com/2012/03/16/a-net-of-words-a-high-level-ontology-for-twitter-tags/ http://twitterresearcher.wordpress.com/2012/06/08/how-to-generate-interest-based-communities-part-1/ http://twitterresearcher.wordpress.com/2012/06/12/how-to-generate-interest-based-communities-part-2/ and thought that it might have a nice application for marketing when a company wants to know what their followers are itnerested in, without actually using some sort of text analysis on their tweets, but instead using their follower ties in this ontology. http://twitterresearcher.wordpress.com/2012/07/26/finding-out-what-people-are-interested-in-by-using-only-structural-information/ Cheers Thomas Plotkowiak Researcher at the MCM Institute St. Gallen 2012/11/6 patrick doreian <[log in to unmask]> > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > On 11/6/2012 8:10 AM, Joshua Introne wrote: > > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > Hi Derek - > > From a somewhat different angle, I've been using Palla's (2007) > community evolution algorithm to perform evolutionary topic analysis in > teams.
