Having experienced the severe problem caused by some version of Elgg, (see previous post) I am now worried about other social networking software. I am especially worried about TikiWiki, which does include among its amazing list of feature a social network capability. I have had no problems with TikiWiki, yet, but I worry. If anyone has had problems, please let me know. I have one installation, which I am hosting in a subdomain for someone else. I think they are using the social networking system (though probably not very much. Since they are using it, I am reluctant to just delete TikiWiki, but I am now a little worried about it. It seems that a security whole or some other problem might cause it to misbehave as Elgg. Anyone who can provide advice, please do. — dpw
I continue to use the clickable image below, though it dates from a time when I naively ignored the dangers of Social Technology.
Like all truly advanced technology, these solutions to social problems will involve a lot of math, but must not require users to have special knowledge or skills. Programmers are invited to help with the development of open source libraries for applied social mathematics.
Non-technical accounts of all these topics as well as accessible accounts of the underlying math are on the front pages of a network of associated websites.
