Great title, I know. In addition, we'll have a great guest, Michael Wu, Principle Scientist at Lithium Technologies. As Michael noted to me in email: "The idea of social ecosystem is to bring everyone on the same page when speaking of social media. Your initial post breaks down the entities at different granularity from unit to organization to ecosystems, which are concepts that are already understood by people. The idea of cyber anthropology is to user social anthropological principles to explain why people behave the way they are on social media. It is the why of social media, and it is the “social” of social media. Since people generally have a good understanding of how human behave in real life through social interactions, social anthropology offers a good organizing principle to understand the social interaction online." I hope you'll join, listen, and engage as we explore this interesting aspect of the social world we're living in today.
