Communicative Practices in Virtual Workspaces Lab Presents at ACM

Thursday, November 11, 2010

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.
