Nodes and Edges

Getting to grips with Agna:



Notes to self:
  1. Before opening Agna, think very hard about the research questions.
  2. Use BBEdit (or similar) to tidy and format data, e.g. capture from Twitter hashtag via Twitter Tag Downloader.
  3. Use BBEdit to analyze data, number of nodes (people), edges (connections, e.g. @replies).
  4. Code data in Agna (shame this isn't automated).
  5. Produce network graphs.
  6. Write paper.
  7. Retire.

Here's a thought. Deliver next year's final year module via Twitter, use Agna to award marks? ;-)
