Sample text

Erickson et al. [1999] emphasize the simplicity of their techniques for creating a sense of social translucence in both synchronous and asynchronous computer-mediated conversation. They define socially translucent systems as ones which "provide perceptually based social cues which afford awareness and accountability" (p. 72) and present an interesting example to elucidate the concept. Thus, consider a door with a sign posted on it that says "open slowly" so that anyone onthe other side ofthe opening door can get hit by the door as it swings open.

It is known that close proximity may increase persuasiveness, or at least what listeners perceive as intended persuasiveness, though too close proximity decreases persuasive influence. The fact that video communications appears to enhance communication in situations that specifically require negotiation may be related to proxemic effects. Grayson and Conventry [1998] examine whether proxemic effects occur in a video connection and how such effects influence communication. The dialog analysis used in the experiment uses a standard decomposition of conversation into backchannels, turns, overlaps and utterances or words.

As an example of an incentive structure which is hostile to collaboration (remotely or locally) consider one that awards participants based on individual claims to ownership of ideas. In such an organization, a collaborative environment which may cloud ownership may be perceived as contrary to an individual's benefit [Olson & Olson, 32 COMPUTER-SUPPORTED COLLABORATION 2000]. Thus, for successful collaboration too occur, the organizational culture must value and promote sharing. The existing patterns of interaction in the organization should also reflect a collaborative attitude, like being aware of other's information requirements and making one's own information available if it is thought to be relevant to others.
