Cyborgs?[edit]

What does this article have to do with cyborgs? ---- CharlesGillingham (talk) 18:11, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

I second this sentiment. As someone who has TAd for Ed Hutchins' "Distributed Cognition" class I can say that "distributed cognition" has as much to do with cyborgs as computer processors. LeoTrottier (talk) 18:14, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
I third it. And, I will ask the same of the Turing test. I can't see what it has to do with distributed cognition. It is a test of whether the communicatior is human-like cognitively, not whether knowledge is distributed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.243.176.158 (talk) 15:37, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Writing Clarity[edit]

This article needs editing for clarity. I would do it, but WP seems a long way from the days in which a person can just make changes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.243.176.158 (talkcontribs) 15:39, 3 August 2008

Spurious link ?[edit]

The section in Applications referring to Turing Test with a link to a paper at soton.ac.uk seems not to be relevant, and the paper linked to seems not to add to the sum of human knowledge about the topic. Would it be cynical to assume that the linker & the linkee may not be unrelated - inbound links from sites with high google weightings being what they are. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.25.247.143 (talk) 18:10, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Please Assume Good Faith! I also agree that the Turing Test mention seems out of place, so I will remove it. However, please don't accuse people of self-promotion without having evidence of that, it's not polite... --mcld (talk) 13:11, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Early Research[edit]

The listed items are not "research", they are proposesal of principles and models of group cognition. The section should be lable Early Theories or Early Proposals. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.243.176.158 (talk) 15:42, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Move 1[edit]

I can't see a case being made for the move to the new name. Cognition in the Wild uses "distributed cognition" as I remember it, to add "social" is to add an interpretation. If a good reason is not forthcoming I'm going to ask for admin assistance to move it back to its original name. Moves should really be proposed first/. --Snowded TALK 13:53, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Agreed. Aconversationalone (talk) 00:15, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Move 2[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved to Distributed cognition. Unopposed for over two weeks. Jenks24 (talk) 12:05, 20 July 2015 (UTC)



Socially distributed cognitionDistributed Cognition – We have noticed an old discussion thread regrind the inappropriateness of the current title, “socially distributed cognition,” correctly noting that this article should just be “distributed cognition.” We propose to USURP the current page so that it re-directs to a new article titled “distributed cognition” since there has been no activity on the long-proposed title change. --Relisted.

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.
