***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Gilad, my GDELT Project might be of interest, it allows you to construct a range of networks over people, organizations, locations, themes, and emotions over the global news media April 2013 to present, including daily updates (shortly 15 minute updates), which allows for a variety of analyses around dynamic and temporal networks. Georeferenced networks can also be created, positioning the nodes in geographic space: http://www.gdeltproject.org/ We have a network visualization tool that generates Gephi, GraphViz, and .NET files directly: http://analysis.gdeltproject.org/module-gkg-network.html and one that generates geographic networks: http://analysis.gdeltproject.org/module-event-geonet.html The quarter-billion-record dyadic event dataset is now available inside of Google's BigQuery database system, which would allow you to construct an array of networks based on fairly complex criteria in near-realtime: http://gigaom.com/2014/05/29/more-than-250-million-global-events-are-now-in-the-cloud-for-anyone-to-analyze/ http://googlecloudplatform.blogspot.com/2014/05/worlds-largest-event-dataset-now-publicly-available-in-google-bigquery.html ~Kalev Yahoo!
