Hi Everyone in the SNA class,
First of all, apologies if this info is duplicate. I'm not sure whether announcements are being sent out as email, and I don't want you to miss tomorrow's Hangout because of an email glitch.
Please check out the announcements: https://class.coursera.org/sna-2012-001/class/index
There you will find info on assignments (1st one due tomorrow (Friday), 2nd one due Tuesday), tips for viewing week 2's lectures, and info on our hangout with Google's researchers Ed Chi and David Huffaker at 11:15am PDT tomorrow.
Copied here for your convenience:
SNA: Google Hangout with Google researchers tomorrow + HW2 feedback
Item 1: I will be chatting with Ed Chi and David Huffaker from Google tomorrow, Friday Oct. 5th, starting 11:15am Pacific Time. Ed and Dave will start out telling us about some SNA research they have been doing at Google, and then we'll open the channel up for questions. To watch the broadcast live, check https://class.coursera.org/sna-2012-001 around that time and there will be a live YouTube stream there (fingers crossed). If you are not in the hangout, you can post your questions to Ed and Dave on this thread https://class.coursera.org/sna-2012-001/forum/thread?thread_id=639. Up to 9 people can join us in the hangout. If you are interested in being one of those 9, please reply to the thread and tell us: 1) a bit about yourself 2) whether you have a high bandwidth connection 3) whether you have a Google+ account

Item 2: by popular demand, HW 2 will now give you immediate feedback. If you have already submitted the assignment, check back to see if the feedback is there. We are still learning about feedback, so if this feedback gives too much away, apologies, we will be more subtle on HW3, or at least try to be.
Item 3: We are glad the forums are so lively. In order to help others (including us) help you, please follow the guidelines posted at the top of the forum page:
* Use up-votes to bring attention to thoughtful, helpful posts (this makes it more likely that they'll get the attention they deserve).
* Search before you post (many duplicate posts make the forum cluttered and less usable).
* Post in the appropriate sub-forum (posting in the wrong sub-forum also creates clutter and makes it more difficult to find relevant info).
And lastly, if you are seeking technical help, please try to be descriptive. Saying 'The stuff is broken' without any further details makes it difficult to debug. Please say what operating system you are on, which software/browser you are using, the URL of the page you were accessing (if applicable), the steps you took that got you to the place where you experienced the problem etc.
Thanks and hope to see some of you tomorrow at the Hangout.
