Bring a laptop (running Windows and Office 2007 or 2010) to this workshop and you can be analyzing a social media network from systems like Twitter, flickr, YouTube and your own email by the end of the day. If you can make a pie-chart in Excel, using the free and open NodeXL (http://nodexl.codeplex.com) you can now make a rich network graph from data extracted from social media systems and other common formats. If you have a network, bring it, if not you can bring a suggested topic that we can map during the course of the day.
