Spree y las comunidades de expertos

Spree se anuncia como una comunidad de intercambio de conocimiento y antes hemos dicho aquí que esta aplicación es un modo de mostrar al social networking. El mecanismo de funcionamiento es, fundamentalmente, la vinculación de distinas personas -expertos- que dialogan en tiempo real haciéndose unos a otros preguntas sobre tópicos varios los cuales son respondidos por cada uno de los expertos en función de sus conocimientos.



De este modo, se anima a los miembros de Spree a que se unan formando comunidades en función de los distintos tópicos de sus preguntas enriqueciendo con ello al conjunto mismo de la base de conocimiento de Spree buscando en esencia generar una base de conocimiento en torno a aquellos temas cuya información no se encuentra en internet, vinculando cada pregunta a un experto con conocimiento en el área.


El hecho de que este proyecto otorge "sentido" y contenido a la conformación de redes sociales asistidas por ordenador (léase social networking), algunas de sus funcionalidades inflaman de entusiasmo pese a su incipiente desarrollo. Es el caso de la de visualización de la red de Spree a través de varias opciones y siempre partiendo de un gráfico estrella.

Si la anterior imagen resulta emocionante (:D) esperen a ver esta que es el detalle de las preguntas hechas en el tópico "computers":


Quizás el mayor atractivo que tiene este proyecto actualmente es el ser OSP (Open Source Project) lo cual posibilita, en mucho, que cosas como el idioma dejen de ser en breve un obstáculo para ampliar la comunidad Spree a lo largo y ancho del mundo. Definitivamente, una sabrosa herramienta para impulsar la conformación y mantenimiento de redes de conocimiento en pequeño y en grande, e incluso, para incorporar a programas de aprendizaje de valores sociales como la colaboración en la apropiación de conocimiento.

Del secuestro de Terminos

A varios nos preocupa, desde hace mucho tiempo, el que algunos términos dentro del análisis de redes sociales vayan siendo progresivamente secuestrados por lo que se entiende como lenguaje vulgar, y que para mi no es más que una suerte de lenguaje mediático que se populariza de un modo a veces intolerable.

Dos días atrás, en la lista electrónica de SNA se difundió un artículo sobre la necesidad de agarrar el toro por los cachos y emprender una suerte de rescate de los términos propios del análisis de redes sociales a través de cosas como, aunque parezca sorprendente, escribir más en los medios .. que en el fondo han fomentado esta confusión con su enamoramiento repentino de términos que manejan de modo inadecuado.

Reproduzco aquí un post en un blog que ha sido lo que desencadenó todo el hilo en la lista de distribución.

Agur.

OK, I have to post about a growing pet peeve. I’m a very, very small lone voice against the vast and growing trend of referring to online social networking applications / platforms (MySpace, FaceBook, white label platforms, etc.) as “social networks”. While social networking applications contain, and are a type of human social network, “social networks” predate the internet by the age of homo sapiens and include different types, scales, and structures of network relationships, interactions and exchanges than are witnessed online.

The following s a pretty crude BlogPulse trend comparison, but I think it’s pretty clear that the common usage has won out over the more accurate term! (Note - the labels don’t reflect the actual boolean search terms which were rather long; the first two trends specifically exclude sites that contain “social network analysis”)

social network analysis versus online social networks

“Social networking applications” or “social networking websites” are unwieldy terms, so it’s easy to understand the abbreviated moniker. I am grateful that this web 2.0 phenomenon has brought so much attention and prestige to the field of social network analysis but at the same time it has trivialized it.

El social networking se hace medieval …

A través de Redes, he sabido ésto:
Social networking gets medieval
Researchers give a French province the 'Facebook' treatment.
Geoff Brumfiel

The popularity of Internet sites such as Facebook, Bebo and MySpace might make social networking seem relatively modern. But a team of French researchers has challenged this idea by trawling through medieval documents to create the oldest detailed social network ever constructed.

Working from records of land transactions dating back as far as 1260, computer scientists have reconstructed the social ties that bound 10 villages in the province of Lot in southwest France. The result is a rare look at how medieval peasants and lords were connected.

Documents showing medieval landholdings have been preserved in other parts of Europe, but are relatively rare in France, says one of the research team, Nathalie Villa of the University of Toulouse. "In France, most of these types of documents disappeared during the revolution," she says. "There is little documentation of how peasants lived their lives."

But in Lot, records of thousands of land transactions survived intact. Villa and her colleagues examined roughly 1,000 contracts, deeds and other documents stored in an online database, and analysed the social ties between the people featured in them.

Two peasants whose names appeared on the same land contract, or who shared the same feudal lord, for example, would be considered to be linked in the social network — rather like Facebook 'friends' of today.

Disappearing families

Some of the results were unsurprising. Neighbours tended to be connected to one another, as did those who lived in the same generations. Generally, lowly serfs didn't get out much, whereas their lords were among the best-connected members of society.

But other findings proved more unexpected, Villa says. For example, some well-connected peasants had a surprising number of social links beyond their village. And analysis of later documents also shows that the network may have changed substantially over the course of the Hundred Years' War — a prolonged conflict that smouldered on and off from 1337 to 1453, as two prominent families vied for the French throne.

Notably, one high-profile land-owning family, named Combelcau, all but disappeared after the War, says Villa. The team's results are reported in the journal Neurocomputing 1.

"It's a very impressive piece of work," says Paul Ormerod, an economist and historian with Volterra Consulting in London, who has modelled the social spread of medieval heresy against the Catholic Church.

Ormerod thinks that Villa's work represents the oldest network to date. "It shows that you can do serious quantitative networks with history," he says.

But Ormerod adds the network doesn’t yet say much about medieval life. He believes the work could be built on to show how medieval societies operated or changed over time. Villa says that her team is now working on a more complete analysis of documents after the Hundred Years' War in hopes of understanding how the society changed and what became of the Combelcau family and other unfortunate dynasties like them.

He escuchado de todo en contra y a favor de Facebook. Y, aunque no tengo acciones en su compañía y también tengo mis propias observaciones, comienzo a verlo, en algunas, útil para hacer algunas cositas "simpáticas" ...

Hoy, vía la lista de SNA (Social Network Analysis), he sabido de Nexus en Facebook. Se trata de una aplicación que dibuja la red social del usuario de facebook y, al mismo tiempo, permite hacer algunos ajustes y juegos con ello.

Con fines de investigación es, realmente, interesante y para empíricos en materia de graficación de redes, permite mostrar algunas cosas interesantes como los cliques (o grupos) que se pueden ir formando y los que, de hecho, se forman.

Aquí una muestra, mi red personal.

Agur!

Eres lo que compartes!

(Tomado de: DAWUDMIRACLE)

written on 16 April, 2008 by Dawud Miracle

I get asked all the time why a business owner should be blogging or engaged in social media.

The answer I give almost always revolves around creating relationships. If you’ve been reading a while, you know one of my favorite statements is people don’t do business with businesses, they do business with people. So relationships become key to business success.

Before the internet, before social media, much of the business world seemed to focus on producing and selling. You’d produce a product or create a service and do everything you could to get people to buy. In other words, marketing was about peddling what you had.

Today, however, and especially with the explosion of social media, the business world is changing. No longer is business just about producing something and selling it. Now, business is more about communication, relationship, community and innovation. And all this is being driven by the conversations happening all over the blogosphere.

As business owners, this means we need to rethink how we go about doing business. We need to consider and engage in the conversation with people who need what we offer. It means we need to be more concerned with customer service - even before the person becomes a customer. It means that what you share in your business is just as important as what you do.

I found this great little video on YouTube that illustrates just that. It was put together by Charles Leadbeater who’s a leading authority on innovation and creativity. Charles’s website says he’s currently involved in research which “focuses on how mass, user driven innovation is reshaping organisations.” If you’re in the UK, you may want to check out Charles book, We Think, The Power of Mass Creativity.

One of the quotes from the video that I found so interesting was this:

Communities don’t just want to make money, they want to socialize and gain recognition for the work they do.

Would you agree?

Take a look at the video. It’s about four minutes long. And at the end, I’d love to hear what you think.

So, are you what you produce or are you what you share? Or both? What are your thoughts?

¿Las plataformas de networking son, social e ideológicamente, neutras?

Desde el blog amigo, Saber Libre, Jose Joaquín Contreras ha colgado un post llamado "'Facebook' o la Sociedad enredada". Aunque colgué allí mismo una respuesta a lo que muestra JJ, creo que amerita un post más amplio aquí y en Policy Networks al respecto, sobre todo viendo cuanto de duro se le ha dado a Facebook desde varios lugares y cuanto de interés comercial puede haber tras tanto ataque.

Bien, Facebook es una de las varias plataformas de networking que hay en la actualidad. Otras también muy conocidas y, de hecho, más utilizadas que Facebook, son Hi5, MySpace, Tagged, Linkedin. Hay otras tantas que no están muy difundidas o que están en fase de experimentación como por ejemplo Spree que agrupa a comunidades de expertos, otras que circunscriben los intereses que marcan el flujo de relaciones en torno a temas específicos como el caso de Last.fm con la música, Flickr con las imágenes, Goticos para gente con gustos de ese tipo, y otras centradas en intercambios entre profesionales afines como Xing (antiguamente e-conozco y a quien se le unió la gente de Neurona). La lista, como bien se sabe, es no sólo interminable, sino que tiene un crecimiento exponencial ... al menos en este momento.

¿Las plataformas de networking son, social e ideológicamente, neutras?

Pappi, et. al. 1996

- ...[I]nstitutionalism suggests that the interpretation of environments with organizing (and its actors and technical functions) is specially great with those features of the social environments that are themselves highly rationalized, that is, with elementos of what was traditionally called "civil society"...-

Buena parte del quid de los análisis de redes políticas se encuentra en la localización de los elementos brokers y en la medición de su centralidad dentro de la red.

Pero también, el potencial de su análisis radica en la exploración de los cambios ocurridos en las redes a lo largo del tiempo y los cambios
