Two great lectures on Community communications

Two really interesting talks on Video Lectures on how to understand community behaviour : both are long and fairly technical, but worth it.

The Structure of Information Pathways in a Social Communication Network

Jon Kleinberg from Cornell offers in half an hour a very interesting suggestion to look at regular communications. Why it is important? Well, he doesn’t gives too much in front of a fairly technical audience but —as proven by Twitter— accounts of “what are you doing” by the hour can let people share a familiarity that lead to trust, tacit information and encourage cooperation.

Influence and Correlation in Social Networks

Mohammad Mahdian from Yahoo! Research explains in one hour how to sort influence, mimetism and common context.

Two good reasons to subsribe to Video Lectures.

I should be back soon with a presentation on all these recent discoveries on community management.

Update: if you do not have one hour to grant to Mohammad, his co-author Aris has a shorter presentation of the same work. And yes, the video stream is a bit dodgy, I don’t know why.

    Bertil, il va chercher du trafic sur Internet Actu ( et lors de ses présentations) parce qu’il veut des comments et du trafic sur son blog “de chercheur” aidons-le. ps: j’espère que tu valides les comments en français, surtout lorsqu’ils ne servent à rien ? merci pour ces liens top cool

    You can accuse me of link-baiting in real-life all you want, Matthieu — I have two blogs, and you only have an avatar ;^). [Matthieu’s a colleague studying Second Life : I know you have someone interesting to introduce to him in your lab, so please do.]

    But you could have commented on the more detailed :
