  • Nicholas Christakis In a fascinating article in today&apos;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&apos;s a casual friend or acquaintance, the risk is still a notable 57 per cent, and your friend&apos;s friends have a similarly increased risk of obesity.

Communities of Practice <br /> Networks<br />Distributed<br />Share common interest<br />Mostly self-organizing<br />Open or closed?<br />No expectation of meeting or even knowing all members of the network<br />Little expectation of direct reciprocity<br />Contribute for social capital building, altruism, and a sense of improving the world/practice through contribution<br />Increases exposure to the adjacent possible<br />(Brown and Duguid, 2001)<br />

    9. 9. I took the liberty of creating a group called 'Sometu' on LinkedIn, with the following description:<br />(...) Sometu stands for “Sosiaalinen Media Oppimisen Tukena,” or “Social Media in Support of Learning.”<br />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.<br />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.<br />
