personal statement

I am a sociologist interested in the study of social media like email lists, web boards, blogs, wikis, and other sharing systems. In particular, I am interested in building tools that visualize patterns in social media including social network diagrams, hierarchy visualizations, and time series and histogram plots. My goal is to create the means to gain a deeper insight into the structure and dynamics of social media repositories. I work at the Connected Action Consulting Group http://www.connectedaction.net where I apply these goals to our line of fine quality social media analysis platforms and services.
