Subject Re: real-world dataset from social network?
Date Thu, 20 May 2010 17:27:31 GMT
It's unclear if you're looking for data that can be stored in Cassandra or an example of someone
using Cassandra to store a network; I'm assuming the former.

You will have a hard time finding a social network dataset with relationships already well-defined
for free.  I have seen crawls of Twitter before, but IIRC they go for thousands (in USD).


There's the Enron email dataset:

The reddit dataset is nice, maybe think beyond explicit connections and use voting commonality
as links between users?  That dataset seems to meet your requirement
of being sufficient to reconstruct a network of users.  You could have "friend" edges that
are based on voting agreement and "shared interest" edges based on
voting on stories from the same subreddits.
