  • Nicholas Christakis In a fascinating article in today's New England Journal of Medicine, researchers at Harvard University and the University of California, San Diego, show that if a close friend becomes obese, your likelihood of becoming obese soars by 171 per cent. If it's a casual friend or acquaintance, the risk is still a notable 57 per cent, and your friend's friends have a similarly increased risk of obesity.

      Mostly self-organizing
      Open or closed?
      No expectation of meeting or even knowing all members of the network
      Little expectation of direct reciprocity

      Anyothers?
    • 8. Example: A Successful Finnish Network
    • 9. I took the liberty of creating a group called 'Sometu' on LinkedIn, with the following description:
      (...) Sometu stands for “Sosiaalinen Media Oppimisen Tukena,” or “Social Media in Support of Learning.”
      The 3,600 people in our network share a common interest in new ways of working and new tools brought about by social media, which support and advance learning both on an individual and a community level.
      Our primary Internet presence is at http://sometu.ning.com. The site sports a Finnish user interface but features a section called “Sometu in English” as well, at http://sometu.ning.com/group/english.

      How do we attract a “critical mass” of ACTIVE users?
    • 16. How can an organization like ADETA re-invent itself as a network?
      Ideas?
      How would you like to be involved in this network??
