Network Diagrams

Steve Waddell describes a variety of interesting network visualizations for understanding policy and its environment – links among NGO’s and financial regulators, say, or social networks in South African business.

A correspondent observes that many of these could be done very nicely in Tinderbox. One benefit would be that Tinderbox isn't just a diagramming tool: after planning your network and presenting it to your sponsors, the tool remains ready to gather information as you build, refine, and react to the realities of your project and the results of your research. It doesn’t gather dust in the corner after the dog-and-pony show.
