Sometimes I Wish That It Would Rain Here

who am I?

I'm at a talk at HICSS being given by Martin Wattenberg. he gave a pretty cool talk about the social uses of many eyes. Tom Erickson just suggested that part of the motivation for the use of SNS is so that people can see their social network, that they draw a sense of power from seeing a visual representation of their friends. Tom then drew an analogy, saying that your social network diagram is sort of your "21st century coat of arms," which I thought was incredibly interesting and provocative. Tom seems to have a knack for saying such things.
