Thanks for posting this, you just made me realize that the long tail is a different view of the birthday paradox. The concepts of network science and this kind of understanding are critical as we move (with or without SCOTUS) towards accountable care models. Welcome your feedback on a series I've been doing on algorithms and architectures in health care and the need for more statistical understanding of how health is influenced by both:
Another great one, John. To your question, my biggest weakness, I think, is the same ones you point out that inhibits sharing: fear of sharing too much or sharing something half-baked. I need to let the conversations sort out the truth and get at the answers, but the important part is getting the conversation started. It's tough to tackle the odds on where to trust and where to be conservative about sharing. There is such a thing as sharing to much and too openly. The more I read about the power of sharing, (, the more I read about how comments in blogs can and will be used against you some day ( It's a tough transition. Seems many companies using tools in the NYTimes article will wind up only hiring folks that are unwilling to share and unable to trust. But it's the easy, quantitative excuse to have a selection process. Meanwhile, those of us who do find trust will all wind up working together outside of traditional employers. I'll add that trust really occurs along 3 facets (for individuals and organizations) that are often jumbled together: 1.Competence: Can a person do what they say they can. 2.Consistency. Will they act in a predictable, professional manner? Can you count on them in all circumstances. 3.Alignment: Do we share the same goals? Do you have my back? Sometimes you can get 2 out of three, but in many relationships, certain areas of trust don't matter. (I don't expect to be able to call someone at my car dealer for support on a business problem.) The expectations of trust and alignment depend on the relationship.
Speaking of context, that was me, @leonardkish, speaking as CGCollaborative above. Was signed into our twitter account when posting. Through, we are working on creating appropriate technology contexts for health care through more open systems, open data and the health web. That's another situation where it's improving context that matters, and it's a never-ending journey.
Great article. In my own experience it feels right. Once I went over about 250 people that I followed (I'd say 250, but the number will depend on the volume of tweets you receive and the amount of time you want to invest on twitter), I felt like I started becoming part of the crowd again, rather than part of a community. I may try to whittle it back or perhaps create a mass distribution account and a "grooming" account. So are you on twitter? @leonardkish
