Yes, my PhD fees are financed by the Social Machines project
( https://sociam.org/ <https://sociam.org/> ), and in other parts I go into the socio-technical
parts of the web. See for example

But at the same time I am looking to see if I can find the right
mathematical concepts to describe the web so as to make
some decisions taken more evident.
