InfoExtractor-A Tool for Social Media Data Mining File C.
Shah C.
Journal of Information Technology and Politics English 2012 In this workbench note, we present InfoExtractor, a Web-based tool for collecting data and metadata from focused social media content. InfoExtractor then provides these data in various structured and unstructured formats for manipulation and analysis. The tool allows social science researchers to collect data for quantitative analysis, and is designed to deliver data from popular and influential social media sites in a useful and easy-to-access format. InfoExtractor was designed to replace traditional means of content aggregation, such as page scraping and brute-force copying. 0 0

'Wikivism': From communicative capitalism to organized networks Paul Stacey Cultural Poltics English 2008 This article examines two different approaches to the political significance of networked technologies like the Internet. It considers Richard Kahn and Douglas Kellner’s “critical/reconstructive” methodology and Jodi Dean’s account of “communicative capitalism,” and shows how the respective approaches are insufficient to elucidate the genuinely radical possibilities we may harbor for the Internet. The case study of “hypertextual databases” or “wikis” is used, both to contextualize the limitations of the above arguments and to present a more radical overture for thinking about network politics. I also utilize Ned Rossiter’s concept of “organized networks” and show how these social-technical forms can provide a more radical proposition for thinking about the political possibilities of wikis. I proceed to translate wikis as specific kinds of organized networks that take us beyond a purely perfunctory language – whether as “information-rich data banks” or else animating the “fantasy of abundance” – and allow us to see them in a decidedly “political” way, as necessarily “incomplete” and thus eminently “rewritable” formations. This essay then concludes by examining the wider implications this “political” reading has for the way in which we understand the multiple situations of nascent forms of democratic politics. 2 1
