"That's a really interesting article. We could have done the same thing with our group where we go step by step to show how the network is forming. That helps to add some way to analyze the results. Our results are limited because I know I was…"
"Good work Katie. I encourage you and Anne and others to look at the original blog article that Valdis wrote prior to the conference in November. When you update your maps, try to show the connections between Valdis, myself and Jean that were in…"
"Ok guys, so I spent several hours at Cabrini Connections tonight, and developed three maps.
The first two maps that I made examined the relationships between people within our project group. Rather than doing before and after the training, I chose…"
"Here's the progress I made on Monday, March 29, 2010.
Figure 1: Pre-training map of everyone
This illustrates how we were connected before the InFlow training day with Valdis.

This is another…"
"This morning Dan wanted me to think about what kind of survey questions we can use to map the six member of the SNA group.
Here are the question I think can be used:
1. Through whom did you know about the SNA project?(Answer can be the organization…"
Jonathan, my name is Katie Anderson, I'm from Dominican University (Graduate School of Library and Information Science). I'm really interested in helping. I haven't yet used the software, but Dan explained his visions for it.…"
"Thanks for taking this role Jonathan. As we talk about what we're doing I hope other interns and volunteers will want to add their own time and talent. Or, you'll learn to apply this concept to your own network, in Chicago or in other…"
So today is my first that i got my hands on the Inflow software that Veldis gave us. The software basically analyzes and maps relationships between people based on their commonality. My accomplishment today with the software is I am able to export a database filled with people's profile. To do this:Export the existing database to be an excel file and save it as ".CSV" formatGo to inflow, File>import>Node dataThere you go, the software will show you all the nodes according on how many…See More
Thanks for joining the group. There are several sub groups where you might introduce yourself. As you do this, be thinking of how you'd map the connections between the different people on this site, and those who attend the conference in Chicago. Those are just two networks that we connect with, and which we'd want to map if we can harness the software to do this.
