For now, this account is being used to post updates about the CemWEB research project I am conducting at Cornell University. This research is being done for a CS 490 (Independent Research) with advisors Phoebe Sengers and Dan Huttenlocher.
I will be looking at LJ community structure and dynamics, including explicit and implicit links between communities (eg. by 'member of' links or 'common members'), cliques of related communities (measured by similarity of interests between communities and their members), community "agenda", and other interesting properties. See this post for an early discussion of goals.
