Many tools from research in social networking have emerged recently we must benefit from them, especially since our networks have grown a lot and if we want to be scalable and have quality relationships we won't be able to go further without coping tools (again).
- improve caller-ID
- display contextual information about the caller
- provide a VoIP version
- use the "Contact" section of wiki pages to automatically include the potential persons interested
- bottom and up limit
- privatization system
- from the more specialized (perfectly matching tag) to the more general (anybody)
- go pass beyond the Dunbar's number while maintaining high quality relationships
- leveraging social models (e.g. Six degrees of separation) and mediated digitalized conversations (SNS, Google Wave, VoIP, ...)
- explore the notion of "social routing"
- applying and visualization models of sociology
Note that being social has a cost (energy, resources, ...) and that maintaining ones network might also be seen with a (non financial) return on investment mindset in order to avoid extremes in both direction (asocial or ultra-social/eusocial).
- Person.Template used to add another person
- generated network
- PageLists to list persons
(:pagelist group=Person list=normal name=-Person,-*Template*:)
- PageListTemplates to make GraphViz code
- PmGraphViz to generate the image and display it
Note that the wiki format provide natively support for history of each page, potentially way to study the "history of a relationship"
(:pmgraphviz -- [=
me [label="me" style=filled fillcolor=blue];
Person.Test1 [label="Person.Test1" style=filled fillcolor=orange];
me -> Person.Test1;
See actually the local implementation (more secure since we are dealing with actual private information).
Check Processing for improved visualization.
- Could family fatigue, meeting family members not for pleasure but because they are related, be a consequence of predictability? Could the low information exchange lead to gradually unpleasant encounters?
- note that this also happens with long-term close acquaintances but to a lesser degree
- increasing predictability
- social pressure
- conflict avoidance
- no small talk required

- find personal topics in which the other person has specific knowledge that is interesting to you
- unique trips for geography, family heritage and culture, youth and history, ...
- introduce new topics and activities
- leverage own skills the other person believe are unique to himself or herself for your own problem
- offer to do the opposite but never force it, let the person take your offer later on if preferred

- Teamwork as offloaded cognition for the initiator of the project
- is it not just delegating by laziness or for efficiency but a solution to solve complexity through scalability
- also, without delegating, could simply the presence within a specialized environment, for example a research laboratory, very efficiently facilitate the conduct of complex work by asking questions to other members and letting them play with those questions in the background of their mind lower the stress on each participant?
- inspired by N is a Number on Paul Erdos, The Mechanical Mind in History and Les Prodigieux Theoremes De Monsieur Nash in which each brilliant work was closer to vision and orchestration of the work to reach it rather than solely tedious attempts

- Semantic Signup allowing to populate a user page with semantic data at signup time
- a possible visualization could also be a timeline with the social network as a series of circles (in order to give an "entourage" perspective) representing persons (eventually with significant part of their own contacts) in order to get an overview of the evolution of the personal social network
- highlighting periods in the timeline, for example transition from a school to another, a place to another and thus displaying radical reconfigurations
- updated contacts section of the different pages
- tag cloud per person based on conversation logs
- generate them periodically to see an evolution over time

- "Moodscope is a blended system in which measurement is supplemented by human sympathy. Self-tracking can sometimes appear narcissistic, but it also allows people to connect with one another in new ways. We leave traces of ourselves with our numbers, like insects putting down a trail of pheromones, and in times of crisis, these signals can lead us to others who share our concerns and care enough to help."
