New Scientist on the Social Networking Revolution

Posted on: September 20, 2006

There were several really great articles today in the New Scientists talking about social networking sites, as well as a nifty short story. I would recommend this read to anyone interested in the topic. Here are the articles as listed on their website, they will be freely accessibly for one week:

This is your space – Discover how social networking evolved, how it works and how it is already revolutionising the way we live, socialise and work

The end of privacy? – You wouldn’t tell a stranger on the bus about your sexual habits, so why do people reveal this stuff on websites available to everyone? Will their openness return to haunt them?

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by Google – A short story by Bruce Sterling

The internet could be so much better – Social networking websites like MySpace or YouTube owe everything to the genius of Ted Nelson, who invented hypertext in the 1960s

Give it a try – Feeling left out of the social networking revolution? There are many ways you can get involved, so take a look
