Gregory Piatetsky-Shapiro, Data Miners less social?
At KDD-2010 conference, social networks analysis was a hot topic, yet kdd10.crowdvine.com social network for the conference was barely active, even though you could sign in with facebook or twitter accounts.
This poll result seems to confirm that many data miners are more interested in analysis of social networks than in participating in them.
