Sorry for the lack of updates. It’s a busy time.

But I’m going to post this pretty awesome article theorizing how social networks play a role in our health and happiness. The idea of networks is something I’ve always wanted to study more (the sociologist in me). How one person can affect their friends and strangers, how the type-A personality can start a revolution, how ideas and open-mindedness can lead to progressive change, etc.

The statistical work they do is a little on the sketchy side, and the source of data, though large, needs to be a little more comprehensive. But all in all, a good, long read.

Here’s the article
