If you need me (which I think you do), no can do. I will be at Smart Stuff That Matters in the Netherlands, with @ton.
FYI, @melancon has obtained funding from his university to build the GraphRyder idea into a robust, scalable technical solution. Their timeline is incompatible with ours: they will be working on this for a couple of years, and we need to be able to carry out analysis now. In fact, @amelia let me know that the OpenVillage - World Bank corpus is coded and ready to be put on GraphRyder for SSNA purposes.
That is not necessarily a problem. In fact, we can help each other: more case studies and more expertise in using SSNA will make the technology more attractive. We should not wait for a full-fledged technical solution, but have viable prototypes and use them as the "permanent" solution is built. So I asked Guy:
What would it take for you to produce an instructable ("install this, install that, configure these parameter as follows...")?
To which he replied
I guess the only answer is "time".
But that was July, and holidays were coming, and all that. Guy, if you are reading me: we should be in touch. I will reach out next week, when holiday season should be over.
