I just got back from a family reunion in San Luis Obispo, CA. It was great to relax and visit with everyone. And it looks like I was not the only person focused on being social, UIE has published a "Going social" podcast, which discusses how to build “an involved and contributing community of users". Jared Spool and Robert Hoekman, Jr. discuss psychology principles (liking, reciprocity, and persuasion) and suggest a few books which examine the intersection of psychology and web design, including Joshua Porter’s Designing for the Social Web, and Christian Crumlish and Erin Malone’s Designing Social Interfaces. The 15 minute podcast also includes some interesting examples of computer assisted social faux pas, and it has an intertaining "NPT Car talk" style to it ... which makes it fun and easy to listen to.
