Social Data Revolution
Promote Your Page Too
The amount of data generated by people doubles roughly every 1.5 years. The plummeting of costs of gathering, storing, and indexing data is having a tremendous impact on the expectations of individuals as they create and share information about themselves and about their relationships with others, both in a C2W context (consumer-to-world, e.g., Twitter) and a C2C context (e.g., Facebook). What are the new data sources, how can they be used to create value for individuals, business, and ultimately society?

Directions to the class
For guests, the following information might be useful: If you come by car, a convenient parking area is the street parking (you need to pay until 4pm) in front of the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts (328 Lomita Drive, Stanford CA 94305). After parking, walk for a few minutes (continuing in the same direction) towards the central part of campus. The first real street you will reach (not counting the street at the museum) is called Serra Mall.
If you want to go to the classroom directly, turn left on Serra Mall. The class is in the leftmost corner of the Quad, Building 200 ("History Corner"), basement room 002 (Stanford CA 94305).
And if you want to grab a bite or a cup of coffee, turn right on Serra Mall and cross the street to get to Bytes Cafe, located at the ground floor of David Packard Electrical Engineering.
There is a
searchable campus map
(keywords: History Corner). If you have problems finding it, any student on campus should be happy to help you with directions.
