Graphs, Edges & Nodes: Untangling the Social Web
Facebook figures out people that you might already know, LinkedIn tells you how many degrees of separation there are between you and the CEO of Nokia, and LastFM suggests music based on your current listening habits.

This is a 50 minute presentation.
