Open ethno data: towards a new Masters of Network?

Should work!

can you send an event invitation?

Once everyone confirms the time, yes.


Sorry! Confirmed,



  • April
  • Secound data set from DLab

What to analyse and why?

  • 2 layers: Organisation + Hackathon tracks.
    • Hackathon Tracks are there to give people and idea: Usual format: You can either join or propose a track. Only requirement is you do a projects that is going to be represented around a graph. EX: “I want to form a team around ‘Can we see weather the view of technology is more dystopian or utopian?’” You just have to have a question, and then use the methodology to move from here to there.


  • We need to define summaries of what the conversations are about, broadly.
  • We need to have people propose tracks.
  • We need to prepare the data.
  • We need to facilitate and connect people and groups running up to the hackathon.
  • We need to support people with specialised expertise to solve issues.
  • We need to facilitate the hackathon.

Hackathon Facilitation:

Internal Research Question:

  • How should the “service for academic research" GraphRyder look like? (RezNet)

Wednesday kickoff event (April 28th) and Friday for final presentation (April 30th) instead?

Of course you are right. Had not adjusted that. Edited now :slight_smile:

The synchronous timeslots are rather uncomfortable for @johncoate timezone wise, so it would in fact probably be good if @Leonie or so could maybe take on a bit of the moderation/hosting role as @amelia suggested if you find you need that.

Also, Maria will be in her maternity leave then. What is it I am being signed up for? My NGI contract this year is very small in terms of hours (about 40 minutes per weekday), so please factor that in.

MCing Day 1, essentially.

I would say this takes precedence.


This is around the time I will have my PhD thesis defence. Once I receive the official date, I can let you know when and how I can help with this!


Draft post for the new MoN here. It’s called 5 because it comes after 4, but I am pretty sure it will actually be the 6th.

  1. Venice (intro)
  2. Rome (policy)
  3. Rome (online communities)
  4. Bordeaux (ethnography)
  5. Brussels (Networks of Care)
  6. Online (Networks of meaning)

Oh darn I see this far too late, and the invitation too.
January is crazy here, I apologize!

Hello all, reviving this topic as we move towards MoN.

We now have a date, a schedule, a minisite. People have started signing up (thread).

What we need:

  • Confirmation of the Gather space. @melancon, did you get around to set it up? If not, would it not be safer to drop it (since it would be a new tool for most of us), and default to Zoom rooms (the devil we know)?
  • More ethnographers! @amelia, I recall you saying that would not be a problem. What did you have in mind? Also, what are your thoughts about involving our own ethnographers? FWIW, I would recommend that Edgeryders ethnographers would get their hands dirty playing with graphs.
  • @Jan and @Richard, we have been discussing POPREBEL people participating too, perhaps in the visualization challenge or perhaps with its own challenge. What are your thoughts? Still interested?

Do people need a 30 mins catch-up meeting?

(Ping also @johncoate, who is going to be doing community management).

I think this could be useful for the POPREBEL ethnographers. @Maniamana, @jitka.kralova and @Djan, would this be of interest?


Yes, we would love it if you three would join – and it would really help you with building the visualisations of your data that you’d like to see. If you can make it a priority, please do.

@alberto, are you free during our POPREBEL ethno bi-weekly tomorrow? If you could come introduce the MoN concept and explain this year’s hackathon to the team, that would be really helpful!

Involving our own POPREBEL ethnography team was exactly what I had in mind when I said this, because given where we are in the project this will be really useful for their research. :slight_smile:

@amelia and @Richard sounds interesting :slight_smile:

which data exactly would @Maniamana, @jitka.kralova and myself be visualizing? Wouldn’t the team coding our interviews be visualizing the data? Thanks
