theory � the idea that any two people are linked to each other by an average of six acquaintances or handshakes (6.6 degrees, to be exact). The study, believed to be the first of its kind conducted on a global social network, researched the connectivity of the Microsoft Messenger instant-messaging network in June 2006 � a database of roughly half the world�s instant-messaging traffic. The Washington Post described Microsoft researcher Eric Horvitz� reaction to the findings as �pretty shocking� we are showing on a very large scale that this idea goes beyond folklore.� But Darcy Rezac , Vancouver Board of Trade managing director ...

Geeky Geek Geeking: Blog Network Analysis - J. Eric Smith ...
If you’re reading this, and you’ve been here before, then you are no doubt aware that I’m a real geek about some things. You know, the kind of person who creates a bunch of spreadsheets to demonstrate a point that probably means next to nothing to anybody else, but which will gnaw at my brain until I wrestle it to the ground and analyze it to death. If this is of concern to you, or if you find such mental gymnastics unappealing, boring, pretentious, self-indulgent, or all of the above, then I suggest you stop reading right now . There is nothing for you to see here today, and there’s a whole universe of ... market research, surveys and trends
Balancing Your Work, Family and Social Life
            Many of us have an image of personal balance as a set of scales in perfect balance every day. But that’s an unrealistic goal. You are in for a lot of frustration if you try to allocate within every day a predetermined portion of time for work, family and your social life.  An illness may upset all your plans. A business project may demand peaks of intense work, followed by valleys of slow time.             Balance requires continual adjustments, like an acrobat on a high wire who constantly shifts ... market research, surveys and trends

Talk about how to spend Joan Kroc's record-setting $200 million gift to NPR began at a meeting of the network's board last week, as giddiness lingered in the form of backslapping and big smiles. Following Kroc's intent, NPR will invest most of the money and draw on the annual returns of about $10 million, according to NPR President Kevin Klose. The network's management and board will consult with stations, regional groups and CPB about how to spend the gain. Producers and station execs are batting around ideas while the media and NPR listeners weigh in with their views. In ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

John Laird's Sprint Toward Sacramento
On Friday, June 11, former Assemblymember John Laird left his house in Aptos at 6:45am and drove three hours south to San Luis Obispo, did an editorial board meeting, stopped by his campaign office there, raced two and a half hours north to Monterey for two more editorial board meetings, stopped at the Monterey campaign office, and then spoke for an hour and a half at a live radio town hall before driving home. “I’m barely recovering,” he says the next day, which is, by comparison, a cakewalk: Greet a group of 100 California Young Democrats at the Santa Clara campaign office and send them off to knock on doors, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Dillon Wins First In Iowa
Austin Dillon made sure there were no doubts nor any question marks about his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory. Dillon, the grandson of team owner Richard Childress, absolutely destroyed the field Sunday at Iowa Speedway to win the Lucas Oil 200 presented by SPEED. On Saturday night, Dillon put the black No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Silverado on the pole at the 0.875-mile speedway, and on Sunday, he ran away from the field in dominating fashion. The youngster led for nearly all the race, holding on through a couple of late-race restarts to win over the ThorSport Racing Chevys of Johnny Sauter ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

I'd like to transcode the commentary tracks of some DVD's for iPod listening, preferably on a mac. I think I have it narrowed down to some obscure VLC commands. Not really knowing where else it would be appropriate to ask this, but does anyone else think that the years and events since the turn of the century (2000) have been particularly trying, difficult, and full of tragedy? Especially in light of this weeks most recent disasters. Odd spot. A couple weeks ago I discovered a pink patch about 2 inches long by 1 inch wide on the top of my left breast. Being a city person, I am curious about why so many barns on the ...

I’d like advice on how to either leave my church as gracefully as possible, or find a way to reconcile my lack of faith with my continued church membership. Inspired by the thoughtful replies to two recent AskMe questions ( here and here ), I also have a question about atheism, but I come at it from a different angle: how can I deal with my lack of faith when I’ve been a committed church member? The real kicker is that I’ve never believed in the first place. Although I’m not posting this anonymously, I seldom have the opportunity to post to Ask Metafilter, and I’m a slow typist, too. I’ll therefore try to provide a lot of ...
