  • BBS, Computer-Mediated Communication, Cyberspace, Computer Supported Collaborative WorkOnline Communities, Web 2.0, Virtual organizationsSocial Media, Social Computing…Over the past 30 years there has been a steady stream of labels for efforts that use technology to bring together collections of people to engage in different social activities. While the labels have changed (sometime rapidly), the hope has remained the same, to use emerging information and communication technologies to enable or enhance the collective participants to mobilize their time, effort, information, and resources to accomplish one or more purposes. CASCI exists to magnify this impact. Identify and leverage the existing work and communities, highlight examples, develop resource resources and facilitate research and education efforts to realize the potential of 21st century communities.
  • This slide recognizes that there are (and will always be) many communities that are neither technology-enabled not technology-enhanced. Whether this situation is by choice (e.g. the Amish) or unintended (e.g. Digital Divide or developing contexts), it is important to recognize that in addition to studying and designing for existing technology-enabled communities and currently technology-enhanced communities, CSACI is interested in supporting efforts to extend the benefits of technology to new communities (that want it).
  • The six areas:Learning and EducationInnovation and Problem SolvingProduction and CurationCommerceEntertainment and ExperienceCivic and Individual Well Being define a multi-dimensional space the includes many of the prominent examples of communities. Note: This framing focuses on the “purposes” of the community – based on the assumption that these underying purposes are closer mapping to the intellectual domains that are the target for this initiative. This framing doesn’t identify societal problems that communities engage or are engaged in –those it would be instructive identify how communities of these different types play into the issue of addressing different problems.This framing also does not reflect structural or technical characteristics of the communities – that is reflected in the Communities and Information Foundations (C & I Foundations)

  • Are there other CI Foundations tags that should be prepopulated? Are these reasonable an logical?Should user generated tags be allowed? [possibly used and fed to area leads to facilitate development of areas?]

    1. 1. SOME ASSUMPTIONS &ASSERTIONS• Online and offline --- useless high level distinction• Communities … Organizations … Groups … whatever• Communities are multi-level entities that exist within inherently competitive “multi-species” ecologies• Networks are nice … Communities are critical• Universities’ competitive advantage is that we’re slow and don’t change• You’re in this for the long haul (the long now of academic life)
    2. 2. CASCICENTER FOR THE ADVANCED STUDY OFCOMMUNITIES AND INFORMATIONREALIZING THE POTENTIAL OF 21 STCENTURY COMMUNITIES…
    3. 3. CASCI: MISSION• The goal of CASCI is to support research and education focused on realizing the potential of 21st century communities through technology and information.• 21st Century Communities…• Realizing the potential…• Advanced study…
    4. 4. 21ST CENTURY COMMUNITIES Technology-Enhanced Communities Technology- Enabled Communities All Communities
    5. 5. REALIZING THEPOTENTIAL OF COMMUNITIES FOR… Commerce Production & Experience & Curation Technology-Enhanced Entertainment Communities Technology- Enabled Communities Innovation & Civic & Individual Problem Solving Well Being Learning & Education
    6. 6. REALIZING THEPOTENTIAL OF COMMUNITIES FOR… New Ways of Commerce Entertainment & Working New “Lifestyles” Production & Experience & Curation Technology-Enhanced Entertainment Communities Economic Technology- Smart Cities and Development Enabled Community (New Industries) Communities Informatics Innovation & Research and Civic & Individual Citizen Science Health Problem Solving Well Being Communities Learning & Education
    7. 7. ADVANCED STUDYCASCI exists to support research and educational activitieswhich advance our understanding of the conceptualfoundations of communities and information and mobilizethat knowledge to have real, tangible impactOur approach is to support these activities by creating andmaintaining the CASCI stack – a set of coordinated workgroups, projects, resources, and events.
    8. 8. THE CASCI STACK:AN ARCHITECTURE FOR THE ADVANCED STUDYOF COMMUNITIES AND INFORMATION Impact Domains Conceptual Foundations Research Resources Data
    9. 9. BUILDING THE CASCI STACK: DATA Data
    10. 10. BUILDING THE CASCI STACK:RESEARCH RESOURCES Research Resources Data
    11. 11. CASCI: FROM DATA TORESEARCH RESOURCES• Scholarly Editions of Community Data Sets• Supporting Dataplay• Exploring the potential of Community Emulators• Research Methods eMonograph series
    12. 12. BUILDING THE CASCI STACK:COMMUNITY FOUNDATIONS Conceptual Foundations Research Resources Data
    13. 13. COMMUNITY ANDINFORMATION FOUNDATIONSConceptual foundations are concepts, issues, andapproaches critical for understanding technology-enabledand technology-enhanced communities and information,including: • Motivation and Participation • Rules, Roles, and Governance • Dialogue and Discourse • Identity and Self-Presentation • Boundaries and Structure • Networks and Communities • Community Ecologies • Measuring and Managing • Technologies and Platforms • Communities and OrganizationsConceptual foundations intertwined collections ofabstractions, language, practices and people.
    14. 14. BUILDING THE CASCI STACK:IMPACT DOMAIN WORKING GROUPS Impact Domains Conceptual Foundations Research Resources Data
    15. 15. IMPACT DOMAINWORKING GROUPS• Impact Statement We are seeking to address <recognized problem> by changing how we <impact area>• Impact Working Groups • Who: 3-5 experts • Problem experts • Impact area experts • Conceptual foundation experts • Goals: • Problem formulation & awareness • Impact imagining • Impact realization • What: • Impact projects • Impact events
