An Idea: The Social Media Algebra

I used to be very good at maths. I really was. Then I started studying computer science stuff (which is normal for a computer scientist) and as time goes by, I forgot many of the coolest stuff I learned when I was a student. For eg. language theories, logic, algebra…

Yesterday, maybe driven by a kind of nostalgia, I had an idea and submitted it to the wisdom of crowds on FriendFeed. I called it the SMA: Social Media Algebra. What I wanted, and hope someone will help me build it is: a formalism, a mathematic formulation of social media notions ; a theory.

SocialWhois: The next step for socialmedia

I was computing arround the interwebs when Chris Saad jumped in my GTalk client and said: "Dude! This things is AWESOME!" —Yes, he was talking about SocialWhois. People who know who Chris is, would quickly understand what SocialWhois is about :)

I am not a blogger. At least I don’t define myself as such. Not that I have anything against blogging of course, but I’m more a developper, so sorry all for the long time without any post.

I’ve been among the people over friendfeed to request filters based on interests, because even if some people like the noise —all the noise— I myself don’t. So I put my “money” ( fbrunel one’s actually, whom I thank so much!) where my mouth is and made NoiseRiver.Read More »
