References for my IZEAfest talk

I gave a talk at IZEAfest about the science of sharing. I wove together a narrative based on recent research in social network analysis and some work we’ve done at People Pattern. It was fun preparing and delivering it!

The livestream of the talk is here [NOTE: the video is currently unavailable and I’m working on finding a new link], and here are the slides.

 

In preparing for the talk, I looked at and referred to a lot of papers. Here’s a list of papers referenced in the talk! Each paper is followed by a link to a PDF or site where you can get the PDF. A huge shout-out to the fantastic work by these scholars—I was really impressed by social network analysis work and the questions and methods they have been working on.
