Group 11:Discussion about Session 2
Firstly,I have a question.Can we find a effective way to analysis the influence?May be some bosses only contact to a few people who contact to other employees,but it is clear that they are the most influencial people.
No,I do not think so.Because influence do not has a clear definition in this context.Therefore,there is no doubt that though hard to believe,but the bosses are not the most influential people .Maybe they can be describe as distinguish or whatever,but they are not influential.
I think the author really gets point.He emphasized twice that the network science is just an abstraction.Do not believe it all, which would probably make you blind.
I learned from the lesson that do not take things for granted.Maybe the truth is far from what you once believed. For example,I once thought that the nodes and the links follow the normal distribution.But actually the follow the pow low distribution.
