Networking Theory

Filed under: Uncategorized — calexander @ 7:05 pm

Does anyone have any good sources on networking theory, or know of research applying networking theory to the blogosphere? I’m sure there is tons. I read some a while ago but I can’t seem to remember where. I think that the Iranian blogosphere would be an especially interesting subject for this research, not least because of the implicitly politicized nature of blogging in Iran and because of the huge expat Iranian blogging community. Thanks.



  1. Hm.. ‘networking theory’. Sounds like an intriguing angle from which to approach the topic. I love it when anthropological/sociological themes intertwine with real science. From a brief perusal online, here are a few links I’ve found that may prove relevant:

    Wikipedia on Network Theory

    On the difference between networks and fields in sociological theory

    UK scholar John Law’s actor-network theory

  2. Be sure to check out Clay Shirky’s website:
    He has plenty of writing on networks and network effects that are quite remarkable.
