Learning Alliances » Where is “the us” in the nework? I’m always on the lookout for how technology changes “being together” — especially how it can change the sense of a group and of our “place” in a group. For that, NodeXL and Twitter have real possibilities. On Saturday, July 14, I’m going to host a session at the Community Leadership Summit to play with these tools in a real life situation. Please come and play! To illustrate what I mean, I’m going to use an example from the CHIFOO meeting the other night.

Text Network Analysis Text network analysis allows one to quickly visualize the meanings and agendas present within a text, live conversation, broadcast, or interview. Our method is different to semantic network analysis. Instead, we focus predominantly on the relationships and clusters of meaning present within the text, uncovering what we call the pathways for meaning circulation Our interest lies in researching the topology of the resulting network, allowing us to focus on a text as a whole rather than its specific semantic parts. These topologies can then be compared with our extensive database in order to sort texts according to their structure rather than arbitrary categories they belong to.

Jakarta Votes: Can Social Media Analytics Offer More Insights than Pollsters? - Yahoo! Sports Singapore Jakarta's governor election is the talk of the week for a great many Indonesians. When I wrote about a politics-oriented social media analytics site recently, I started to wonder how would such services' results compare to conventional pollsters. I tried to dig a little through surveys released by both sides and in this post you will see my findings. Quick count results of Jakarta's governor election have surprised many conventional pollsters as it differs so much from their own survey results from before the actual election. Based on news released by Centro One and Detik, I compiled a comparison of pre-election survey results and quick count results conducted by three popular pollsters in Indonesia, namely Lingkaran Survey Indonesia (LSI), IndoBarometer, and Jaringan Survey Indonesia (JSI) in the graph below:

Projects - *ORA Overview | People | Sponsors | Publications | Hardware Requirements | Software | Training & Sample Data *ORA is a dynamic meta-network assessment and analysis tool developed by CASOS at Carnegie Mellon. It contains hundreds of social network, dynamic network metrics, trail metrics, procedures for grouping nodes, identifying local patterns, comparing and contrasting networks, groups, and individuals from a dynamic meta-network perspective. *ORA has been used to examine how networks change through space and time, contains procedures for moving back and forth between trail data (e.g. who was where when) and network data (who is connected to whom, who is connected to where …), and has a variety of geo-spatial network metrics, and change detection techniques. *ORA can handle multi-mode, multi-plex, multi-level networks.
