  • Introduction (family picture, Russia picture, BYU, Umich and iSchools, Maryland - 4 years, HCIL, CASCI, IGERT) Talk about iSchools
  • More than 500 million active users 50% of our active users log on to Facebook in any given day Average user has 130 friends People spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook
  • See special issue of IEEE Computer, Nov. 2010 focused on Technology-Mediated Social Participation.
  • Please join the BYU LDSTECH Chapter!
  • Hutchin’s classic paper explores the idea of treating a cockpit as a unit of analysis from a cognitive psychology standpoint – one that includes both human and technological components to perform computation and memory tasks. However, as most of cognitive psychology work, it focuses on one individual and not emergent properties on a social level. What would/does a socio-technical social system look like and how can we analyze them? Lostpedia provides one example of a socio-technical system engaged in “sensemaking by the masses”.
  • Unfortunately, too often we as researchers only pay lip service to #1 above. My own interests lie at the intersection of information technologies, social experience, and public good domains (i.e., those that require volunteer efforts by large groups of people). I focus on two areas within that intersection: developing and applying tools and techniques for analyzing these experiences, and designing novel socio-technical systems that work in public good domains. Note that this is inherently an interdisciplinary field
  • Our goal is to democratize the analysis of social network analysis.
