edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Computer-supported cooperative work:
  • rewrite introduction
  • possible concepts to include:
    • boundary objects (cite Star, 1989)
    • organizational memory (cite Ackerman & Halverson, 2004)
    • sensemaking (cite Weick and some CSCW researchers; cite Dervin 1998 J. Knowledge Mgmt "Sense-making theory and practice: an overview of user interests in knowledge seeking and use" http://www.emeraldinsight.com/journals.htm?articleid=883659&show=abstract)
    • common information space (cite Schmidt & Bannon, 1992)
    • design rationale (cite Maclean, Young & Moran, 1989)
    • co-located collaboration (like tabletop interfaces)
    • formality (cite Shipman et al., 1999)
    • recommendation (social matching: cite McDonald & Terveen; collaborative filtering: Resnick, 1994; intelligent task routing: Cosley et al, 2006)
  • move list of top cited CSCW works to a separate list page
  • describe different styles of studies
    • ethnography of workplaces / coordination practices (e.g. Heath & Luff, 1991; Egger & Wagner, 1992)
    • field studies of deployed technology
    • system design
    • content analysis
  • describe domains
    • workplaces
    • distributed authoring/software development (configuration management tools (e.g. Grinter, 1996), wikipedia)
    • online communities (social tagging, wikipedia, usenet)
  • use the "most cited papers" as inline references rather than a stand-alone list, making it more valuable to new readers

interesting quote...[edit]

"the IT industry has inconsistently used and abused so many collaboration-related words and phrases that it’s important to revisit the basics to ensure we’re working with a shared context"--Ray Ozzie (2003)

References[edit]

It seems odd to me that there are 47 references on this article, but only 1 fully written paragraph, and a outline of another. Would a start be to eliminate all of the references that are not acually referenced in the article?, and perhaps use the others as source material?Cander0000 17:34, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

references explanations...[edit]

These 47 seven papers are the result of a study published in the last CSCW conference in Banff in 2006 (this paper is cited in the article: "the chasm of CSCW")

There are the most cited papers and are in some sense the heart of CSCW. This paper list can be very usefull for a person that want to explore 20 years of CSCW...

Maybe, this has to be explained in the page ?

So i think that the banner "indiscriminately sources" is not justified at all. These 47 papers list have been already accepted by the CSCW community...

Rewrite of section[edit]

I rewrote the major section to this article, as the text seemed to make some erroneous claims, as well as being a bit tangential to explaining the CSCW field. I did try to incorporate the major concerns that were expressed in the text that I replaced. Drop me a line if there are concerns with the changes. It can definitely be elaborated upon a great deal.

Redirect problem[edit]

Computer-supported cooperative work points to computer-supported collaboration, not this article. MaxVeers (talk) 23:45, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

  • Thanks, I updated the redirect - Leafman (talk) 18:12, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

A confusing array of buzzword articles needs structure[edit]

I'm seeing a lot of "collaboration" and "cooperation" buzzwords appearing as articles. Those articles often refer to each other, and need some organization. (And I see from the first section above that this has been a problem for the last 6 years.)

See my list of examples at Talk:Collaborative working environment.

This article is patchy and not representative of the field[edit]

The article comes across as an arbitrary collection of terms and references. It needs editing by somebody who has an overview of this (vast) field. For instance, the key role of ethnographic studies of cooperative work practices in natural settings is not represented. In its current form, it would be more appropriate if the title was changed to “Computer-Mediated Communications” or “Groupware”.

The list of 47 “most cited papers” is misleading. The study from which it has been lifted is based on a bibliometric analysis of the ACM Digital Library only -- and does not take into account works published at ECSCW (since 1989), the CSCW Journal (since 1992), the COOP conferences series, the Springer CSCW book series, and so on.

Computer supported cooperative workComputer-supported cooperative work

That's how it is in the article text, which is consistent with WP's house style (WP:HYPHEN) and sibling titles (WP:TITLE). Tony (talk) 11:04, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
