  • (Dis)connecting Cultures: When Collaboration Technologies Are Not Enough – Sara Bly November 4, 2009 - Much work in collaboration has focused on task-specific activities.  The Media Space (a technologically-connected environment of audio and video) was counter to this trend in that it was always on and often peripheral to ongoing activity.  It successfully allowed collaboration in a research laboratory geographically split between Portland, OR, and Palo Alto, CA, spawning a […]

  • Making and Sharing Space: Design Success for Interaction and Industrial Designers – Gretchen Anderson September 2, 2009 - When designing products with both form and function aspects to them, a team of people with varied talents is required.

  • Understanding, Fostering, and Supporting Cultures of Participation – Gerhard Fischer June 3, 2009 - A culture’s penchant for participation is not dictated by technology; rather, it is the result of changes in human behavior and social organization including innovative design, adoption, appropriation, and adaptation of technologies to their needs.

  • Agile Retrospectives: Collaboration for Continuous Improvement – Diana Larsen March 4, 2009 - Software teams experience what goes right and what goes wrong, what works and what doesn’t, during each and every day of each and every project.
