This Monday, 10 July 2006, the second hour of the Diane Rehm Show will be about social networks on the Web. This is one of the best interview/call-in shows on US radio and is well known for intelligent discussions on timely topics.
Many millions of Americans have joined online social networks. We’ll talk about their appeal and what corporate and government researchers could learn from them. Guests:

- Albert-Laszlo Barbabasi, professor of physics, University of Notre Dame and author of “Linked: How Everything is Connected to Everything Else”

In addition to listening to it live on the radio (11:00 EDT (GMT-5) on many stations), you can also hear it live on the Internet or download it after a delay of some hours.
