Steven J Altschuler, Lani F Wu, David Ingerman: Methods and apparatus for determining or inferring influential rumormongers from resource usage data. Microsoft Corporation, Peter L Michaelson, Michaelson & Wallace, November 21, 2000: US06151585 (49 worldwide citation)

Resource usage data is used to infer degrees of influence between users. Once such inferences are made, a directed graph representation of the users and the inferred "influence" between the users can be generated. "Influential rumormongers" can then be determined from the directed graph, for example ...
