I made many revisions to the CSCW version of the notes. I have not updated the slides. First, I updated the introductory material, only to find that Jonathan had already done that in the version that he sent by email. We still have to update the agenda and table of contents. I will describe all the changes I made and follow that with some suggestions and/or questions for Jonathan. I put both files on BSCW.
- Deleted the word Hypertext from the 2x3 matrix of technology features
- I split the slide titled Facilitating Face-to-Face Meetings into two slides, one of which is about the software and facilitation research thread and the other about the research driven by new technologies (large displays and tabletop displays).
- In the first exercise I changed one word. I changed Sarah's ambition from an Internet service to a web-based service.
- I merged two slides about multi-user and shared applications into one slide. I took out all the stuff about the technology and standards, and also took out references to ClearBoard.
- I made a small wording edit on the IM and Chat slide
- Deleted the video about the mutually-immersive telepresence system with a robot
- Deleted the slide about CVEs and team workspaces. Very dated!
- In its place, inserted a slide about adoption of video based on HICSS paper
- Changed the title of the data conference use slide to begin with Adoption Case Study, creating transition from previous slide
- Added a new slide showing the growing data conference use up to the present time.
- On the Technologies for Organizations slide I removed Hypertext
- On the Asynchronous Information Sharing slide I changed "worldwide web technology" to just "web technology".
- Updated the slide "Research on Uses of Shared Workspaces". I added the observation that work is interrupted frequently and a reference to Gloria's work. Also deleted references to experiences developing and deploying shared workspaces.
- Deleted the slide on Standalone versus Embedded Workflow. Added two slides. One showing a UML disgram of a simple workflow and a second showing what the real workflow model looks like.
- After the Young and Rubicam study I inserted a new slide with observations from my unpublished workflow paper.
- On the Technology for Communities slide I deleted the referece to AskMe. I cannot find that technology anymore. Did that whole class of technology disappear from the web? If so, this is interesting.
- On the Online Social Environments: Virtual Worlds and Games slide I deleted words saying that collaboration in virtual worlds is an active research topic. It was very active in CSCW, and I think it is still active, but now there are separate conferences on this topic, such as the Collaborative Virtual Worlds conference.
Okay, now for some comments/suggestions/questions
- Should we keep Benford's video? It isn't terribly relevant. Can we do something to heighten its relevance?
- What should we do about the Community-related sites slide? Is it up to date?
- The NETSCAN video seems out of place. How about moving it to after the discussion of Wikis and Blogs?
- Do you think an update of the Wikis and blogs section is needed? Students at CSCW may know a lot more than me about wikis and blogs.
- What about the emerging technologies that we discussed more recently, such as the public web photo and video posting sites. I think that those should be mentioned in the communities section. Can you help with that?
