Science 2.0: Studying Collaboration in Socio-Technical Systems


The social network visualization shows the voting patterns of U. S. Senators during 2007. It is an example of the research topics and methods that will be part of Science 2.0. The red Republicans are on the right and the blue Democrats are on the left, with two Independents. Links indicate the similarity of voting records, revealing that Democrats had stronger party loyalty during 2007. Four Republican Senators from Northeastern states often voted with Democrats. McCain and Brownback were campaigning for the Presidency and did not vote often enough to be connected. This graphic was produced with SocialAction (http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/socialaction).
