  • Your insight has got me thinking more deeply about how TRULY ARTIFACTS ARE critical for effective collaboration! My current dissertation research focuses on The Impact of Online/Offline Collaboration on Idea Generation Processes in the Blending Learning Environment. Let's collaborate, Eugene! I have questions...

  • I'm a ghostwriter and I have an inherent bias about meeting my authors face to face, at least at the start of a project. I feel I'm able to get inside their heads a lot easier by watching them talk and interact with other people. But this presentation will no doubt help me make those face-to-face meetings, and subsequent online interactions, much more productive. Thanks!

  • I work with a 'virtual' company that only meets in person about once a month. We work with many clients who we've never met in person. I've never felt that the work suffered for lack of in-personness. In fact, I feel like the meetings are usually more productive because of the 'artifact effect' and also because information sharing tends to be less hampered by the subtle psycho-social dynamics that go on in meatspace.

    That said, I do think there are times where in-person meetings are critical, such as project kick-offs and some kinds of requirements gathering, and contextual inquiry, of course.

    Thank you for the informative presentation.

  • Thanks for the reference to Joshua Porter's work! I wasn't familiar with it before, and I plan on taking a look.

  • The discussion on Artifacts reminds me a lot of Joshua Porter's work on social objects. The key to good artifacts is to mimic well known modes of interaction (mostly from the face-to-face world) - just like we can improve face-to-face collaboration with good facilitation we can do the same online through good user interfaces.
