I'm happy to announce a new project, called Netzschleuder: networks.skewed.de

This is a network data catalogue and repository. It currently contains 257 datasets totaling 3,916 individual networks (94,956 if you include a big @openstreetmap@twitter.com trove).

New on the @arxiv_physics: "Disentangling homophily, community structure and triadic closure in networks", arxiv.org/abs/2101.02510

Homophily/communities and triadic closure (triangles) are conflated properties in network analysis, and this method tells them apart.

Spannend: Der Bundes-#Datenschutz-Beauftragte #Kelber empfiehlt Städten und Bundesländern, ihre Seiten bei #Facebook zu schließen.

"'Ein datenschutzkonformer Betrieb einer Facebook-Fanpage ist gegenwärtig nicht möglich', so Kelber.​ Heißt: Es besteht die Gefahr, dass Facebook Daten absaugt und für Werbezwecke nutzt bzw. verkauft."

Gibt es Städte, die eine eigene #Mastodon-Instanz betreiben?

Imagine if instead of the current model of "getting data from companies", computational social science actually had data-generating research facilities, a la @CERN@twitter.com?

Deliberate or not, this is next-level agnotogenesis (creating uncertainty or doubt to stave off regulatory action).

The two decades since 9/11 have been a litany of American destruction by way of American self-destruction, with secret policies, secret laws, secret courts, and secret wars the US government has repeatedly denied, disclaimed, and distorted.

Carl Sagan testifying before Congress in 1985 on how the greenhouse effect will change the global climate system.

“I think what is essential for this problem is a global consciousness. A view that transcends our exclusive identifications”
