  • MBoffin.com – Designline – A Design Timeline

    I have often wondered what it would be like to see a web site design progress from start to finish, with each tweak and change being shown as it progresses””a design timeline, if you will. To create this designline, I took a screenshot basically every time I saved my HTML file. I’m one of those people who impulsively hits Ctrl-S after every tiny little change, so you end up seeing every little change made to the file as it goes. I started out with a blank text file and I go all the way to a completed site design. Check it out.

  • Introduction to Social Network Methods: Table of Contents

    This on-line textbook introduces many of the basics of formal approaches to the analysis of social networks. The text relies heavily on the work of Freeman, Borgatti, and Everett (the authors of the UCINET software package). The materials here, and their organization, were also very strongly influenced by the text of Wasserman and Faust, and by a graduate seminar conducted by Professor Phillip Bonacich at UCLA. Many other users have also made very helpful comments and suggestions based on the first version. Errors and omissions, of course, are the responsibility of the authors.
