We have talked a lot about the opinion dynamics recently, thus before going on summer holiday, we would like to share a very relevant post by a computational linguist K. Simler. In the said post he explores the complexity of social systems from the point of view of various network topologies on which a diffusion process (which can be either contagion or idea and information spread) plays out. This tutorial also involves a lot of neat interactive apps.
We encourage you to explore "Going critical" on https://www.meltingasphalt.com/interactive/going-critical/.
See you after the summer holidays!
