What is a Blog?

Much or our recent work has been focused on the Blogosphere, which refers to the growing social network of people that write blogs, or web logs. We explore the social capital found in these networks of bloggers. Here is a little screencast that explains what blogs are and their relevance in today's world.

WITS '07 in Montreal December 8-9

The Seventeenth Annual Workshop on Information Technologies and Systems (WITS'07) will be held next weekend in Montreal, Canada. Despite the fact that Montreal is a very cold place, above average temperatures are expected on the days of the workshop (the white line on the plot below indicates the average temperature), which will be nice.

The workshop will be covering the following topics:
  • Social Networks
  • Security, Privacy and Risk Management
  • Collaboration and Blogging
  • Learning and Classification
  • Software Strategies
  • Knowledge Management
  • Ecommerce Systems
  • Workflow and Business Process Management
  • Recommender Systems
  • Data Management
  • Modeling and Evaluation of IS
  • Data Mining
They have me scheduled to present first in the "Social Networks" session, which happens to be the first session of the conference. I'm excited to share the work that we have been doing and collaborate with those that attend.
