  17. 17. Case study: EC research proposal• writing a bid for a European Commission research project• a charismatic, hard working leader with a tendency to micromanagement• initially about 10 collaborators, to scale to about 30• collaborators to revise, comment and edit drafts produced by the leaders• a three-month working period
  18. 18. •the core: Google Doc (wiki functionalities, word processor look- and-feel)Solution: Google Docs + •coordination: Google Groups (mailing list, doubles up as a forum) Google Groups •the social arrangement: the leader writes a draft, then he shares. Others can comment, edit, fill in the blanks.
  19. 19. EC research proposal: the outcome• successful collaboration: recognized value added• team building• the scope for collaboration expanded along the way• more comments than edits, unclear permission structure
  20. 20. Case study: peer-to-peer business plans• getting creatives to help each other in developing business plans• scalable community: starts at 0, up to 1000s of participants• labour of love• trust issues between Govt and creatives

  23. 23. Assignment• design a collaborative system for students and faculty of this course to organize course material and produce a shared knowledge base• interpret network shape, scale and command vs. consent of the intended collaboration• choose a tool based on your interpretation
