Net-Map Toolbox

Yesterday I listened to NPR’s coverage of the elections in Mexico , and as always, I listened with network ears. Following the discussion I thought: “Well even if (IF) the new president really wants to clean up shop and reign in corruption, what chance does he have against the established illicit networks?”

Finding your blogging voice: lessons from Jack Kerouac

Jenny Connected

This morning I found a pingback on my last post about blogging and conscious incompetence. This came from Lisa Lane’s (online) teaching blog and her post – To Not Speak. Like Bonnie Stewart , Paul Prinsloo , me and I’m sure many others, Lisa has been wondering why some bloggers become tongue-tied and lose their voice. Lisa has said that she needs ‘inspiration for a completely different kind of analysis of what I do’.

Metaphors, Storytelling and What’s Happening in the Gulf

Michelle Laurie

It helps explain what BP is actually doing in terms of addressing the catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico. A colleague sent this YouTube clip to me. It is very funny! It also uses simple metaphors to get its message across. Telling stories and using metaphors are underutilized, yet extremely helpful in communicating messages. If BP has any chance of saving its reputation, they need to create their own metaphors and a very convincing counter-story.

Network identifies flu formerly known as swine

Endless Knots

It was Mexico's "network of 11 disease surveillance units" that noticed the surge in cases of flu. For those who question the power of networks, consider this. Through simple pattern recognition across the network--when a critical mass of nodes shared information, epidemiologists were able to project doubling rates. See James F. Smith's article, " Network alerted Mexican officials to flu " in The Boston Globe's April 28, 2009, issue.
