The Web is more a social creation than a technical one. I designed it for a social effect—to help people work together—and not as a technical toy. The ultimate goal of the Web is to support and improve our weblike existence in the world. We clump into families, associations, and companies. We develop trust across the miles and distrust around the corner.
Thoroughly updated Chapter 7 from Buzz to Google+.
Minor update to Chapter 9 to point readers to the community-supported Python Facebook SDK.
Relatively minor updates to Chapter 1 to sort out common problems reported in errata, related to Twitter API changes and NetworkX.
Closed out all errata for Mining the Social Web in the O’Reilly author portal, which involved a couple of minor updates to code listings and a few minor changes to Chapter 7.
Updated all example code and checked it into GitHub.
