Socially Intelligent Computing, part 2

Welcome to the More Than Sound podcast.

New York University professor Clay Shirky explores the intersection of social networks and electronic networks. Previously on the podcast, we featured an excerpt from his CD Socially Intelligent Computing in which he and Daniel Goleman discussed how the very structure of the internet supports behavior such as flaming, and inhibits users’ ability to connect. In this episode, the two discuss ways that structure could be improved, challenges that groups of users face in the meantime, and the important role emotion plays in bridging the gaps.
