Title: Un-constraining the medium: design software systems to support situated action
Authors: Anderson, Ben
Issue Date: 1998
Publisher: © Ben Anderson
Abstract: This dissertation is concerned with Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and in particular with ways in which insights from ethnomethodology can be melded into the design of CSCW systems—a relationship that has been labelled technomethodology.
