American Sociological Association 108th Annual Meeting Logo

The theme for the 2013 ASA conference (Linking Micro and Macro) was a good fit for my presentation with Arnout:  “No Praise without Effort: Experimental Evidence on the Matthew Effect in Wikipedia.”

The CITASA round table session was well-attended:  I don’t remember ever seeing so many people crammed around one table, and in fact there was a second ring of chairs around the presenters! Our paper provided an intriguing contrast of the virtues of “big data” and “small data” – in our case, how small data from an experiment can clarify the causal processes observed in big data studies. Our paper is currently under review at PLoS ONE as a follow-up to our previous study.
