Fowler, Nicholas A. Christakis,<br />

Fowler, Nicholas A. Christakis,<br />
  12. 12. Three Degrees of Influence<br />If we are connected to everyone by 6 degrees and influence those up to 3 degrees, then we can reach halfway to the whole world! <br />1<br />2<br />3<br />Photo by Wonderworks, Flikr<br />Slide: Tasha Bock, James H. Fowler, Nicholas A. Christakis,<br />
  13. 13.

Fowler, Nicholas A. Christakis,<br />Photos by Minako Bracken and Torley, Flickr<br />

Virtual Worlds<br />The Ultimatum Game works in virtual worlds too.<br />But people are affected by the appearance of their avatar!<br />Player 2’s with tall avatars accept low offers only 38% of the time while short avatars accepted 72% of the time, regardless of the height of the actual players!<br />Slide: Tasha Bock, James H. Fowler, Nicholas A. Christakis,<br />Photos by moggsoceanlane, Flickr<br />
  18. 18. The Same But Different<br />The boundaries between the internet and reality are beginning to blur.<br />One woman even went to jail for having an avatar killed.<br />Slide: Tasha Bock, James H. Fowler, Nicholas A. Christakis,<br />Photos by ☆ Shorne ☆and kangotraveler, Flickr<br />
