Damn that boy is smart. Posted on 02/26/2002.

It's been linked elsewhere, but I just had to point to Peter Morville's latest on social networks. Very smart stuff, with nifty design, too!

To which I'd add a pointer to the work of Christopher Lueg, who also has been doing some interesting deep research in this area.

Another interesting analysis of social networks is this one where the researchers analyzed how often every Marvel Comics character appeared with every other one. The result: Captain America is the best connected hero of them all.
