Keeping with my tendency to collect reading lists, here’s a list of readings on social networks. I’m doing research and early design work around some concepts involving social networks, so suggested resources are welcome.
I was trying to phrase my discomfort about the current trend to apply network theory (especially power laws) willy-nilly to social networks, and thankfully Anne already spoke more eloquently than me. The above stuff is written by social scientists, not physicists, their eagerness to contribute notwithstanding.
