Here are the slides from the talk to Google that our retroV group (Information Virality) gave. This project got the Google researc award and it was great to be able to present some of our findings to Google.
This presentation is based on two academic papers:
1. Political Blogs and Content: Homophily in the Guise of Cross-Linking
2. Fifteen Minutes of Fame: The Place of Blogs in the Life Cycle of Viral Political Information
