Résilience et écosysteme internet

Abstract : The Internet is a complex ecosystem in which it is possible to observe certain constancies, some mechanisms seeming to obey laws (Huberman, 2001). This ecosystem can be observed at a micro community level considering interactions of people sharing a common point of interest. In this paper, we are concerned with the future of a subset ecosystem when a web community has to face a sudden shock. In order to achieve this, we hypothesize that the shock is likely to alter the topology of the ecosystem and to polarize social exchanges on a few digital places that play the role of totems, churches and worship places. Collective history, collective memory and emotion can be shared in such places. (Norris et Stevens, 2008). In this work, we chose to conduct a case study that will lead us to analyze a community of fans following the death of their idol: Michael Jackson. We will retrospectively establish an info metrics observatory to identify the exchanges around the star before and after his death (privileged spaces for interaction, the number of people sharing, the way to communicate). This approach will represent a particular topology of the eco system that could be consider as a resilience marker.
