    • Who we are
    • What we are trying to do:Open Tools, Open Data, Open Scholarship
      Build the “Firefox of GraphML” – open tools for collecting and visualizing social media data
      Connect users to network analysis – make network charts as easy as making a pie chart
      Connect researchers to social media data sources
      Archive: Be the “Allen Very Large Telescope Array” for Social Media data – coordinate and aggregate the results of many user’s data collection and analysis
      Create open access research papers & findings
      Make “collections of connections” easy for users to manage
    • What we have done: Open Tools
      NodeXL
      Data providers (“spigots”)
      ThreadMill Message Board
      Exchange Enterprise Email

      YouTube
      Flickr
    • What we have done: Open Data
      NodeXLGraphGallery.org
      User generated collection of network graphs, datasets and annotations
      Collective repository for the research community
      Published collections of data from a range of social media data sources to help students and researchers connect with data of interest and relevance
    • What we have done: Open Scholarship
