Live update from Bethesda, MD. We arrived in Bethesda yesterday and we are still trying to recover from the jet lag. This morning, after a great breakfast at the local pancake house, we are doing some work on a conversation ranking system based on our friendfeed data. Being able to rank online conversation is undoubtedly a great challenge and we are currently working on a model able to keep together relational aspects (followers and popularity of people taking part in the conversation) and conversational aspects (how people took part in that conversation, whit what degree of involvement, how spread was the conversation among the network and so on). We are pretty excited about this model and we hope to be able to share something more soon.
In the meanwhile tomorrow we’re presenting our project and our data here, you can follow us on Twitter.
