The Communicative Practices in Virtual Workspaces lab (Mark Zachry, director) presented two research projects at the 2010 ACM GROUP conference in Sanibel, Florida, November 7–10, 2010. The first project was a poster describing the lab's development of a web-based application for systematic, multi-researcher coding of digital content. The application QBox, was also featured earlier this year in a demonstration at Wikimania 2010 in Gdansk, Poland. The Group poster and abstract, "Designing Qbox: A Tool for Sorting Things Out in Digital Spaces," were prepared by HCDE graduate students Doug Divine, Jonathan T. Morgan, and Jamie Ourada with Professor Zachry.
The second project was a research presentation, "Negotiating with Angry Mastodons: The Wikipedia Policy Environment as Genre Ecology." This research was conducted by PhD student Jonathan T. Morgan and Mark Zachry.
