]]June 27 2017== Women in Lee's (1969) study ask some of their friends if they know an abortionist, who may ask further down in the network, until a willing abortionist is found who then establishes a tie with the focal women. I think this is exactly the mechanism in your paper the "generative model for feedback networks".
In two months from now, I want to submit an ERC proposal, with a more refined version of the network experiments with chat windows for gossip instead of binary gossip. Is it okay if I mention your name among the collaborators? Any comments on the proposal are welcome.
By the way, I realized that your 2006 paper in PRE formalizes Lee's (1969) "in search of an abortionist."
