***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear all, A new version of EgoNet is available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/egonet/. EgoNet is an open source program for the collection and visualization of personal network data, which was designed by Chris McCarty. In this version, we have added the following functionality, which allow a greater diversity of questionnaire designs in EgoNet: First, instead of a fixed number of nominations, users can now choose between a fixed and a minimum number of nominations (the minimum can also be set to 0). Second, Egonet can now also be used in research with multiple name generators. For the second and subsequent name generators, users can select names that respondents already mentioned and enter new names. The relation between names and name generators can be saved in a separate file. Josep Floriach Ventosinos and Martin Smith did the programming. A workshop in EgoNet will be given as part of the international summer course "The measurement of personal networks" in Barcelona, July 1-5. (http://grupsderecerca.uab.cat/egolab/content/summer-course). A short demo will be given in the workshop "Mixed Methods Research Designs for Ego-centered Social Networks" at the Sunbelt.
