Studying the dynamics of interacting networks:
The study of interconnected and/or interdependent networks reveals new and unexpected phenomena. Here, we have shown that two networks well below their respective epidemic thresholds may sustain an endemic state when coupling connections are added, even in small number. This may have important implications for the design of efficient control strategies.
My translation: the people who act as bridges or connections between networks, play a disproportionally significant role in the way things move through networks, when you look at networks of networks. Makes good intuitive sense.
Thanks John Hagel. Wouldn’t have seen this without you flagging it.

We live in world of connected networks yet largely study isolated networks – that’s finally changing
