      Hi Paul,
      Is the "Creating Business Value through Social Network Analysis" webinar still an option?  I can't find it on the training site.

      Mike: since you've been involved with software development I wanted to reply to your post.  I also work developers, and my dissertation was on SNA with Raytheon Company (defense electronics) , but in particular, SNA for an IT department.  Raytheon does ONA as part of their Professional Services Division, here's a link if interested.  (See "Catalyst Engagement" a bit down on the page):

      I could not agree with you more about the intel community no being
      more aware of what is already available commercially and in
      academia. Working in a physically closed environment tends to close
      the mind as well, (one of the reasons I had to leave).

      As for the meaning of "successful" , I must qualify my perspective as
      that of a software developer. Regarding the software products I
      mentioned: I was responsible for many of the key ideas, the
      architecture, look and feel, and technical leadership. So when the
      products exceeded customer expectations, were delivered on time, and
      were still growing in use when I left: that is successful software.
      My software-centric view of the world is another reason I want to see
      the bigger picture.
