Valdis Krebs on network graphs and online community

For quite a long time, I’ve come to respect the work of Valdis Krebs. As a pioneer in the concept of social network analysis and its application, and as a “network weaver” (something close to a community manager but less domain-related) but especially as someone able to convey what all that means.

A couple of days ago at Patrick Lambe’s Green Chameleon blog (Patrick, do your remember about that draft paper :-D) I saw a link to this: he’s mapped the “typical online community” and graphed it, but he’s also taken the time to explain some of the key phenomena of a community in terms of networks and their representation. While of course there’s a lot more to the story, the parts he tells are so very well told (and so plainly visible with his graphs) that I’m sure he’s built a very useful reference. I’m bound to use it, for one, and I hope many people come to the SNA toolset that way.

I don’t know if the work is recent or not, but it looks so. If you already knew it, please excuse the repetition :-).

  1. Thank you for the link!

    You spelled my name wrong — it should be: Krebs

    Thanks.

  2. Yes I do remember Miguel, with some embarrassment! I’m still struggling to excavate down to that level in my inbox!

  3. Hi Valdis,

    thank you for writing the article… and my excuses for the misspelling :-), I’ve just corrected it. Shame, shame.

    Patrick, I look forward to the success of your excavations :-D.
