How social networks are not at all like real people networks

An interesting presentation by Paul Adams on how online social networks are not built at all in the same way real life networks are. For a long time now I’ve kept, on the back of my mind, this idea that there must be a way for scientists to interact in a 21st century way rather than our current, ‘tried and tested’, peer-reviewed publication system. This talk has sparked quite a few ideas in my head but none clear enough for me to actually describe here. Nonetheless, a really interesting presentation worth the 200-and-some slides!
