Egotistics - Social network analysis program that allows users to simultaneously explore multiple personal networks.
Version: 0.9.0Egotistics is a social network analysis program that allows users to simultaneously explore multiple personal networks (called 'ego networks').
Operating System: Mac OS X
Egotistics is software designed for two purposes: batch processing and the analysis of ego networks (personal networks). While a great deal of software exists for network analysis, few tools allow for the analysis of numerous small networks that have little or no relation to each other, or contain connected egos.
The software itself was designed in Java 5.0, and at the writing of this manual, is in the prototype phase. Specifically, the current major version is 0.5. The software itself is being tested and algorithms are being optimized. Any feedback would be appreciated as changes are made regularly.
Egotistics was developed by Bernie Hogan and Wojciech Gryc at Dr. Barry Wellman's NetLab, at the University of Toronto, in Canada. The software is open source, but a license has yet to be chosen (it will be selected prior to the first stable, public release). Until then, please contact us prior to making modifications or redistributing the code.
