  • really interesting. i'm working on something that has ovrelaps; in a nut shell can be titled as: towards a sociology of shared interactive media. Gender is an important dynamic within this, especially when we consider assumptions about the pace and risk of modern life. in paritcular i want to suggest that there is an emergent culture that relies on the relationship between technology innovation and social behaviour. SNSs represent one of the most distinguishing factors that affect connections, reputations and influence how individuals observe, surveil and respond to one another.

Women Who Tech Presentation: Women, Technology and Social Capital

  1. It’s probably useful for me to start by describing what I mean by social capital...
  2. Social Capital (Pierre Bourdieu 1983): the aggregate of the actual or potential resources which are linked to possession of a durable network of more or less institutionalized relationships of mutual acquaintance and recognition
  3. Social Capital includes: • connections • reputation • influence • access to ideas and talent through your connections • access to resources through your connections • “potential” access to further resources (more distant, but very legitimate) • saved up favors (reciprocity is huge - which is why doing good stuff matter a lot with social capital) • accomplishments (slightly different from reputation, it is the more fungible form of SC - resumes, awards, etc.)
