Social Atom reports on complex networks

Mark Buchanan* ("Who am I") is posting about a meeting on Complex Networks, 2-6 July, Sardegna, Italy. It's a "big ideas" topic, so fun to read about. You'll need to go to the blog to find the separate posts, they aren't linked. Oddly enough for someone writing about networks, Mr. Buchanan doesn't use Google's tags/categories to group related posts.

* "The Social Atom" is a blog to promote a book about the thesis that humans are individually simple ("atomic"), but that complex social phenomena emerge from the interaction of many "social atoms" (chemistry). The blog is pseudonymous, but the book has a name on it.
