We've not made much progress on our Social Network Analysis work since the November 2010 conference due to lack of volunteers/interns and money. In the past few weeks I've been going through old files of the 34 conferences since 1994 and the 15 Aug/Sept. volunteer recruitment campaigns since 1994. In each of these we've reached out to groups of tutor/mentor programs and related people and many have come together for collective efforts. What started with 70 people at the first conference has grown to more than 1000 organizations participating by 2010.
My goal is to find a way to map this. I was sent a video today showing a technology that might be used to show the T/MC network, the different groupings, and the growth caused by the actions of the T/MC. Take a look.
If we can find the volunteers/data scientists, tech support and donors to support T/MC we could be using something like this to demonstrate the power of individuals to build communities of purpose and people in cities all over the world might be inspired to duplicate what T/MC has done.
