The co-author of Networked (and more than 200 articles), Barry studies the Triple Revolution: the intersection of the turn to social networks, the personalized internet, and always-available mobile connections. Wellman is currently directing two studies at the NetLab of the University of Toronto’s iSchool: how “Networked Individuals” integrate digital devices and in-person connections; and how far-flung, multiteam “Networked Work” actually works. He’s a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and has received multiple international awards, and has been acclaimed as a Canadian Digital Media Pioneer.
