In its 40-year tenure as a form of communication, email has run its course from the domain of über nerdy computer scientists to one of the most common ways to keep in touch, both personally and professionally.

Is Twitter an egalitarian medium? « Sporadically Pensive Twitter is heralded as many things: a dynamic, shifting news feed, a connector to millions of people, a powerful marketing tool, not to mention a chronic waste of time, a pointless exercise and the procrastination tool of students and workers alike. Indeed, the cafe in which I write this post followed me on Twitter which is how I found out about it. Though it struck me recently that Twitter, for all of its uses, is free of much of the superficialities of the world we live in (though it must be said, comes with just as many superficial banalities of its own).
Comme toujours, trois plantes vertes tentent – sans succès – d'égayer la tribune. comme toujours, la salle de presse a cet air triste et fonctionnel d'un salon de conférence au sous-sol d'un grand hôtel. Comme toujours, ça commence à l'heure. Ici les traditions ont la vie dure. Nous sommes au Vatican , même si l'édifice de la sala stampa (salle de presse) du Saint-Siège, via della Conciliazione, à Rome, est géographiquement situé en territoire italien, à 100 mètres de la frontière matérialisée par la barrière de bois qui marque l'entrée de la place Saint-Pierre. Ce 2 décembre, le Vatican annonce au monde l'ouverture imminente du compte Twitter du pape Benoît XVI : @pontifex . @pontifex, le plan com' du Vatican

Summary: In most online communities, 90% of users are lurkers who never contribute, 9% of users contribute a little, and 1% of users account for almost all the action. All large-scale, multi-user communities and online social networks that rely on users to contribute content or build services share one property: most users don't participate very much. Often, they simply lurk in the background. In contrast, a tiny minority of users usually accounts for a disproportionately large amount of the content and other system activity. This phenomenon of participation inequality was first studied in depth by Will Hill in the early '90s, when he worked down the hall from me at Bell Communications Research (see references below). When you plot the amount of activity for each user, the result is a Zipf curve , which shows as a straight line in a log-log diagram .

[Note: I recently updated this compilation to include some more recent visualizations... you can see it here .] Here’s a collection of terrific social media infographics that might come in handy. As you probably know, infographics are visual representations of information, data, or knowledge. They illustrate information that would be unwieldy in text form and they act as a kind of visual shorthand, making information easy to understand and consume. They are driven by the same information as charts, but they’re often a better form of communication because of their pleasant aesthetics — charts and graphs can communicate data, but infographics turn data into information.
