***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I must say I really enjoyed Charles' chapter on ethics of social network research. It is frank, critical, and confronts issues that I don't think I've seen dealt with elsewhere.

I was doing some searching on ethics and scientific responsibility and came across this short simple letter to the editor from 1968 in the NY Review of Books:

http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/1968/apr/11/responsibility-of-scientists/?pagination=false

What I like about this letter/statement is it takes the question of ethics beyond just questions of informed consent (where most research methods textbooks stop) or conforming to the norms of good scientific research (publishing results publicly, cooperating internationally, etc.).

The question it seems to me, is what is the responsibility of scientists for the products of their labor? 

If someone is bombed by a drone, or locked up in Guantanamo, because their eigenvalue was high enough, or their p-value low enough, do the network scientists involved share any responsibility? And which ones? The guy who designed the eigenvalue algorithm? The person who designed and sold the software? The assistant who calculated network centralities on the dataset?

There is an entire chapter on the ethics of social network research in my recent book, "Understanding Social Networks" ( Oxford University Press).

Hi SOCNET-ers

 

We are hosting students from developing nations this summer and I’ve been tasked with delivering an intro to social network analysis session. The entire session is just 2 hours long, students are unfamiliar with SNA and have limited quants skills, and so I am looking for materials/activities that are straightforward, practical, insightful and fun!

 

Does anybody have any materials they would be willing to share?

 

I would be very grateful!

 

Best wishes

Natalie

I think, that playing around with their Facebook ego-network should entertain them a bit. You should try Bernie Hogan's NameGenWeb application for that:

Another interesting tool for social network exploration is theyrule.net, which shows how companies are connected through common board members (and vice versa):

Hope that helps,
Alex.

Hi SOCNET-ers

 

We are hosting students from developing nations this summer and I’ve been tasked with delivering an intro to social network analysis session. The entire session is just 2 hours long, students are unfamiliar with SNA and have limited quants skills, and so I am looking for materials/activities that are straightforward, practical, insightful and fun!

 

Does anybody have any materials they would be willing to share?

 

I would be very grateful!

 

Best wishes

Natalie

We are hosting students from developing nations this summer and I’ve been tasked with delivering an intro to social network analysis session. The entire session is just 2 hours long, students are unfamiliar with SNA and have limited quants skills, and so I am looking for materials/activities that are straightforward, practical, insightful and fun!

To give you a flavor for the kind of papers there is an overview of the minitrack below. These will be full papers, no longer than 10 pages (in 10 pt). Reviews will be due *August 1*. If you are interested in reviewing, please send an email to Caroline Haythornthwaite <[log in to unmask]> with your name, institution (if any), position (student, faculty, other), and 3-5 keywords to describe the areas you feel most competent reviewing. Please also indicate if you are able to review 1, 2 or 3 papers. Thanks to volunteers in advance, -- Anatoliy Gruzd, PhD Associate Professor, School of Information Management Director, Social Media Lab Faculty of Management / Faculty of Computer Science Dalhousie University, Canada Social Networking and Communities minitrack in the Digital and Social Media track http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu/hicss_47/dsm.html The focus of this mintrack is primarily on social media and their interrelations with communities (online and offline) in the context of work, personal life, and education. We would like to attract papers that address issues of social media and online communities of practice, inquiry and interest; social, political and economic social media sustained and/or augmented communities. By ‘communities’, we include communities of practice, epistemic communities, communities of inquiry; as well as fully virtual communities, and social media use that supports or complements geographically based community. Social media use for maintenance of interpersonal and communal relations, real-time updates of local activity, and awareness and social network building is rapidly expanding. Community building and community management can be key success factors in the society, encompassing work, education, social life, and play. An understanding of design of technologies and practices, and the networks and behaviors emerging from the use of such media can play an important role in creating and sustaining effective educational, social, political and economic practices in the 21st century. _______________________________________________ The [log in to unmask] mailing list is provided by the Association of Internet Researchers http://aoir.org Subscribe, change options or unsubscribe at: http://listserv.aoir.org/listinfo.cgi/air-l-aoir.org Join the Association of Internet Researchers: http://www.aoir.org/ _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).

The sociology of translations specifies a mechanism for generating variation in relations (“associations”), whereas the systems perspective enables the specification of (functionally different) selection environments such as markets, professional organizations, and political control. Selection environments can also be considered as mechanisms of social coordination that can “self-organize” – the control of human agency – into a regime in terms of interacting codes of communication. Unlike relatively globalized regimes, technological trajectories are organized locally in “landscapes,” and can be purposefully influenced by organizations. A resulting “duality of structure” (Giddens, 1979) between the historical organization of trajectories and evolutionary self-organization at the regime level can be expected to drive innovation cycles. Reflexive translations add a third layer of multiple perspectives to (i) the relational analysis of observable links that shape trajectories, and (ii) the positional analysis of networks in terms of latent dimensions. These three operations can be studied using different methodologies. Latour’s first-order “associations” are thus analytically distinguished from second-order “translations.” However, the resulting operations remain “infra-reflexively” nested, and can therefore lead to innovative reconstructions of previously constructed boundaries.

***

The workshop will cover computationally intensive methods used to
effectively handle and analyze large-scale networks on datasets involving

enabling one to analyze structural properties of networks, generate
networks from microscopic rules, simulate dynamic processes on networks,
and much more.  The approach is also scalable, meaning that the methods may
be applied to systems of various sizes, from small networks with a few
actors to massive networks consisting of millions of nodes.

Participants will learn the necessary scripting skills, and the associated
support skills, that will enable them to build their own tools for carrying
out computational network analysis. The basics of Python and NetworkX will
be taught (although this is not a course on programming) so that this
powerful combination can be applied by participants to network analysis.

After the workshop, and a little practice, the participants will be able to

include examining network properties under a structural perturbation (e.g.

The workshop is a third-level course, and assumes that participants already
