Call for Network Analysis
That’s a blatant call for research in social network analysis! Take this piece from Bloomberg news, draw some graph over the nodes in blue, match with some good old alumni database (ENA, Polytechnique, Mines, and the like) and you’ll get the sociological meaning of the word “viable” in the following quote:
“The fund won’t invest in companies that are not viable, Sarkozy said” (“Sarkozy Fund to Raise EU6 Billion for Investments”, Bloomberg.com, November 20th 2008)
Ah, good old sociology.
