One of the main major advancements in computing during the last ten years has been the expansion of curiosity in machine established aid for individuals operating jointly. reputation that a lot paintings performed in workplaces is basically team paintings has resulted in the emergence of a unique subfield of laptop technological know-how below the name laptop Supported Cooperative paintings (CSCW). because the time period was once first coined in 1984, there was becoming knowledge of the relevance to the sphere of, and the dear con­ tributions to be made via, non-computing disciplines reminiscent of sociology, administration technological know-how, social psychology and anthro­ pology. This quantity addresses layout concerns in CSCW, an- on account that this subject crucially contains human in addition to technical concerns - brings jointly researchers from the sort of wide diversity of disciplines. lots of the chapters during this quantity have been initially awarded as papers on the one-day seminar, "Design concerns in CSCW", held on the division of exchange and (DTI), London, on 17 March 1992, one in aseries of DTI-supported CSCW SIG seminars. we wish to specific our gratitude to the sequence editors, Colston Sanger and Dan Diaper, for his or her valuable reviews on, and recommendations for revisions to, the ultimate draft of the manuscript; to Linda Schofield, our editor at Springer, for her endured encouragement through the coaching of the manuscript; and, ultimately, to our respective households for his or her aid and endurance over such a lot of months.

Example text

The example of Fig. 10. Communication. 4 Computerized Artefacts of Work 19 ShrEdit is one where the artefact of work is computerized. 5. In Dix (1991), I examined the distinction between communication via messages as compared to using shared data. At first sight these categories appear to correspond to the direct communication between the participants (which is often message based) and through the shared application objects. This is, however, an oversimplification. Looking at direct communication, systems such as bulletin boards and electronic whiteboards act as direct interpersonal channels, but are a shared information source.

10). Examples of such systems include Timbuktu (Farallon 1987), ShrEdit (CSMIL 1989) and other shared screen applications. These systems all implicitly assurne that the participants will have some additional means of communication: face-to-face, audio or audio/visual. Indeed, there is no particular reason why such systems could not be combined with an on-line electronic conferencing system. Nevertheless, the systems in themselves only support a shared artefact. There is, of course, communication through the artefact: the participants can read each other's typing and share a focus of attention.

If we look at the term "computer supported cooperative work", we see that work comes at the end. The take-horne message is that work should be at the centre of CSCW.

The author also wishes to thank his colleagues on the "conferencer" project and all those who have commented on previous drafts and oral presentations of this work. Notes 1 I'm not sure where politics fits into this spectrum: surely not under intellectuallabour?
