Marc A. Smith is Senior Research Sociologist at Microsoft Research. His research explores computer-mediated collective action, specializing in the social organization of online communities and computer mediated interaction.

Smith’s goal is to visualize social cyberspaces, mapping and measuring their structure, dynamics and life cycles.
