danah boyd on Friendship

April 12, 2009Tribes

This is a little film clip I did with danah boyd, a Microsoft researcher. She talks about decoding the patterns of our friendships. (If I were a pro, I would have edited out the first couple of seconds before she realizes the camera's running. But, actually, that moment of recognition, when she snaps into a smile, is my favorite moment in the whole clip. Not that you shouldn't watch the rest...)

This is part of the Friendship series I'm working on at BusinessWeek. I'm heading out to the West Coast tomorrow, and hope to talk to people at Facebook, LinkedIn, and elsewhere. I'll take along my flip camera and post more video, too.
