  1. Paris Review - The Art of Fiction No. 211, William Gibson

    I finally got round to reading this interview. Good stuff.

  2. Standing Ovation Model

    A nice simple explanation.

  3. Threshold model - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    For the references to Mark Granovetter’s model. Again, can’t find a good, simple explanation.

  4. Index of dissimilarity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It’s proving surprisingly difficult to find good, clear, illustrated summaries of these things.

  5. Schelling segregation applet

    Demonstration of the Schelling segregation model. (I am currently wading through a thicket of Java applets and it feels like the 1990s.)

  6. The Social Graph is Neither (Pinboard Blog)

    From last year, a great read about how ever more closely modelled versions of our social networks don’t create as interesting a community as a simple forum (to drastically simplify the argument).
