"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)
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)
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.

A confusing array of buzzword articles needs structure
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.)
This article is patchy and not representative of the field
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.
