So a lot know-how works, now not by way of sturdy layout or via being a very good healthy to function, yet simply because humans make it paintings simply because they must for a few cause. We people are enormously artistic and ingenious by way of getting whatever performed. there are lots of tales shall we all inform of the creative work-arounds we've got constructed to make anything do what we need it to; or the large period of time we have now spent searching for out easy methods to make a few know-how paintings as we need, e.g., looking for out tips to flip off auto-editing instructions in a be aware processing package deal while all we need is for it to 'do what we inform it'. an outstanding instance of this precept was once what prompted me to modify from neural networks to the realm of desktop Supported Cooperative paintings (CSCW) for my PhD study. I had undertaken a case learn taking a look at the deployment of a multi-million buck overall healthiness info method all through a clinic network.

Example text

Summary of Theoretical Approaches Halverson (2002) argues that there are four attributes that we are looking for when we take a pragmatic view of theory in CSCw. The first attribute is descriptive power; by offering conceptual frameworks that helps us make sense of the world, all of the approaches just mentioned do this in their own ways. The second is rhetorical power; by providing named concepts, activity theory and Strauss' theory of action have stronger rhetorical power than DC, while ethnomethodology avoids naming concepts altogether.

Physical world notions - such as Lynch's (1960) five legibility markers, and Hillier and Hanson 's (1984) algorithm for spatial and social patterning - have inftuenced work on way-finding in 3-D virtual spaces (Bowers, 1995). Perhaps the greatest effort has been directed towards the support of awareness in space-based collaboration systems, as weH as coming up with appropriate The CSCW Design Challenge 35 models to base such support on. , 1994). Remembering the earlier comment about diverse uses of the term awareness, note that awareness here is defined as a computational function for the purposes of (3-D) systems design where position and direction can be measured.

The concerns of CSCW push both generative and analytic abstractions beyond their current bounds. From a technical perspective, formal representations, abstractions and methodologies play an important role in communication among computer scientists (Button and Sharrock, 1995; Nardi, 1993) and in producing system behaviour (Button and Dourish, 1996). When these systems are CSCW systems, however, existing abstractions are not always able to meet CSCW needs, as we saw with some approaches to workflow support.
