LINKS: Intra Organizational Networks in Business

Big news from the Gatton College of Business and Economics at the University of Kentucky, which very recently founded LINKS, the International Center for Social Network Research. The homepage says
The mission of the center is to bring together scholars from different academic disciplines who share a common interest in social network research and application. Our overarching goal is to conduct and publish cutting-edge research in the rapidly expanding field of social network analysis; and to serve as a bridge between the science of social networks and real world organizational problems. The core insight of the network perspective is that the pattern of relations among the elements of a system—be they people, organizations, neurons, or computer servers—has important consequences for the system's performance.
Some very impressive people have moved to Kentucky to join Dan Brass, including Steve Borgatti, Joe LaBianca, and Ajay Mehra. Keep your eye on LINKS.
