NSF funding: Project to explore collaborative processes in SNSs

I announced this on Twitter and Facebook, but realized I haven't done so here. Cliff Lampe and I recently received NSF funding to study ad-hoc collaborative instances in Facebook and other SNSs. More about the project is available on the NSF website. I'm hopeful that this research will produce theoretical and pragmatic insights into the new ways in which we are seeking advice, information, and support from our strong and weak ties, and am looking forward to working with Cliff and our team of awesome grad students.
