Stowe Boyd recently linked back to some of his 2013 writing on social capital in his newsletter.
I really dig it. Boyd cites sociologist Ronald Burt & Burt’s 2004 book Structural Holes, The Social Structure of Competition (Harvard University Press, 1992):
“Social capital exists where people have an advantage because of their location in a social structure.”
Personally & professionally, I’m constantly striving to fill structural holes between social networks. I take great pride in connecting otherwise disconnected subnetworks. Its kinda what Twotone is all about.
As always, thanks for reading!
