Feedback from Gerhard on 3/6:

I strongly encourage you to think about systems for collaboration such as
  1. EDC
  2. Swikis and Wikis
  3. Wikipedia
  4. Open Source

interesting aspects about collaboration are:

  1. Communities of Practice versus Communities of Interest - sources (the article plus the references mentioned in the articles):Fischer, G., & Ostwald, J. (2005) "Knowledge Communication In Design Communities." In R. Bromme, F. Hesse, & H. Spada (Eds.), Barriers and Biases in Computer-Mediated Knowledge Communication, Springer, New York, NY, pp 213 - 242.
  2. Boundary Objects (e.g., how is understanding achieved among people who come from different disciplines and backgrounds) - sources: Bowker, G. C., & Star, S. L. (2000) Sorting Things Out Classification and Its Consequences, MIT Press, Cambridge, MA., specifcally chapter 9
  3. distances and diversity Fischer, G. (2005) "Distances and Diversity: Sources for Social Creativity," Proceedings of Creativity & Cognition, London, April, pp. 128-136.
  4. fish-scale model of collaboration sources (the article plus the references mentioned in the articles): Campbell, D. T. (2005) "Ethnocentrism of Disciplines and the Fish-Scale Model of Omniscience." In S. J. Derry, C. D. Schunn, & M. A. Gernsbacher (Eds.), Interdisciplinary Collaboration An Emerging Cognitive Science, Lawrence Erlbaum, Mahwah, NJ, pp. 3-21.

In case you are interested: I have these sources and you can copy the relevant articles from my books!
