Portals and KM: Interesting SNA tool at MIT

noviembre 14, 2010

May 03, 2004Interesting SNA tool at MITSocial Network Analysis SNA is another potential candidate for TBNT – see Social Networking in NYC. I had the pleasure of spending time last month with Peter Gloor of MIT Sloan CCS and the Dartmouth Tuck School. Peter is the former head of the eCommerce practice for Deloitte in Europe. He and his colleagues at MIT/Tuck have developed an open source SNA tool. You can find and download it at The tool analyses social networks by looking at e-mail patterns. It can be used to understand the communication patterns within work groups and others who communicate through e-mail. Both functional and dysfunctional patterns can be determined and this analysis can provide guidance for corrective action to increase work group productivity. Peter and his colleagues are especially interested in the use of SNA to promote innovation.

Ancient Scripts: Maya

noviembre 7, 2010

The second cycle, the tzolk’in, is not divided into months but contains two parallel cycles, one of 13 and the other of 20. The cycle of 13 are identified by numbers, but the cycle of 20 has days with names.

And the following are the signs of the tzolk’in ritual cycle.

The keeping of the tzolk’in is still practiced among modern Maya, especially by Maya nations of highland Guatemala such as the Quiché or the Kakchiquel. The practioners are called “daykeepers”, are open to both genders, and they also serve functions such as diviners, midwives, and bonesetters.
