I listened to this podcast last night and was surprised to learn that national science foundation is funding the building of a really cool DataWeb. Enjoy…Noshir Contractor at MeshForum 2005
Dr. Contractor presents a multi-theoretical multilevel model of using technologies to understand knowledge and social network organization through the discussion of real-world examples. From the ‘Lovegety’ to Amazon purchase suggestions and beyond, Dr. Contractor outlines the concepts that form the basis of social and knowledge networks.
Those concepts are:
- the social network, “it’s not what you know, but who you know”;
- the cognitive-social network, “it’s not who you know, it’s who they you think you know”;
- the knowledge network, “it’s not who you know, it’s what they think you know”;
- the cognitive-knowledge network, “it’s not who you know, it’s what who you know knows.”
