A little refresh for 2018. Nothing elaborate - links to a new CSCW 2018 and ASIS&T paper and update for the course I'm teaching during Winter Quarter 2018.
Computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), human-computer interaction (HCI), social computing, collaboration in Wikipedia.

Our study of Wikipedia is aimed at desgining systems that support large scale collaborative action. Our design approach is motivated by social translucence as a soci-technical perspective that can facilitate better sense making of the activities and roles that individuals and groups play in large scale systems. We study Wikipedia because it is a successful example of large scale groupware.
Remixed has been out for several years. We have reports of people adopting the book in seminars and reading courses as a supplement to their normal set of conference and journal readings. Let us know if you want some ideas on how to make this work.
