I will be making a presentation at the Free Software & Open Source
Symposium on October 26, on social network analysis of an open source
community. See http://fsoss.senecac.on.ca/2007/presentationDetails.php?presentationID=84
for details on my presentation. For an example of what this kind of
analysis is about, see
At the presentation, I will be displaying social network maps that
have tw.o/sourceforge usernames as node labels (your username may
appear if you have edited wiki pages on doc.tw.o/dev.tw.o or posted to
the users/devel sourceforge mailing lists). NO email addresses will be
shown. I will be saying that the maps are of the Tikiwiki community.
There will also be a demo of a new prototype tool that generates
social network maps of a wiki at the abovementioned presentation and
at Wikisym (http://www.wikisym.org/ws2007/) held the same week, that
will reveal tw.o usernames and show what pages these usernames have
edited in doc.tw.o/dev.tw.o.
The presentation will be filmed by the conference organizers and made
the web under a Creative Commons license.
If anyone has an objection to having their tw.o/sourceforge usernames
used as labels on the social network maps, please let me know and I
can do one of 2 things as you request:
1. replace your label with "anonymous01" with numbers incrementing.
2. completely remove you from the social network maps.
