Cultural negotiation: language, norms, beliefs, values (sociology) Social negotiation: personal histories & relationships, personalities & computability issues, reputation (psychology)
  27. 27. Negotiation in Collective Activity A collaborative system’s capacity for negotiation is directly proportional to the robustness of its outcomes.
  28. 28. Understanding Participation Collective Process Output Negotiation Activity disparate elements patterns across Low Coordination pulled into a relational disparate elements (cultural) space become visible individuals comply to aggregated value of Medium Cooperation process / set of individual (cultural, social) instructions contributions participants of a group co-created innovation High Collaboration add/edit/deletes same representing a shared (social, cultural) pool of content understanding
