Recycling social networks – a diagonal approach


This is an attempt to investigate, in an almost GIS (geographical information system) approach, the behaviour and the randomness that could lead to unpredictable social network performances. No owner of ideas, nobody claims full responsibility of actions and everybody feels also independent from the network.
