Using Collaboration Patterns for Contextualizing Roles in Community Systems Design

Making CommunitySense

On October 28, I presented my paper “Using Collaboration Patterns for Contextualizing Roles in Community Systems Design&# at the Community Informatics Research Network 2010 Conference (CIRN 2010) in Prato, Italy. Activation of collaborative communities is hampered by the communicative fragmentation that is at least partially caused by their distributed tool systems. We examine the role of domain, conversation, and functionality roles in modelling community activation.

It’s not always easy

Chris Corrigan

Setting up the room in a circle might cause people to “lose their minds.” There is a good reason to create an unfamiliar room set up: it helps to disrupt mental models and invites new ways of thinking. It will cause people to stop and reflect and engage with what you are doing, and it will make their acceptance of the invitation a more authentic yes.

Messy

Forms, flow charts, matrices, systems diagrams, models – all are designed to help us make sense of this complex, messy world we live in. We assume that messy can be ordered, that wild can be tamed, that we can predict cause and effect. Sometimes we can. If machines are involved, usually. When humans are involved, everything changes. Messy is normal. Get used to it.
