Book Description

Nov. 12 2002 Computer Supported Cooperative Work
Beginning with a brief outline of Usenet's general structure and development over the past few years, the book addresses the problems of exploring virtual communities and distributed information systems in general, and of finding information in electronic information environments. It covers traditional approaches such as information filtering, collaborative filtering and information retrieval, outlining their successes and failures, and discusses the prospects of novel approaches such as visualisations of social processes and social navigation.

Review

From the reviews:

"Lueg and Fisher have put together a strong collection of papers, some new, some previously published, about Usenet and related technologies. The strength of this book is its multiple perspectives on Usenet newsgroups, covering topics such as its political history, analyses of its social structure, and methods for extracting information from it."

This review is by MIT's Judith Donath and can be found in New Media & Society, Volume 6, Issue 3, June 2004.

"Lueg and Fisher have put together a strong collection of papers … about Usenet and related technologies. The strength of this book is its multiple perspectives on Usenet newsgroups, covering topics such as its political history, analyses of its social structure, and methods for extracting information from it. … is most successful as a techno-social volume about Usenet and similar discussion lists. … This volume … will be of special interest to interface designers and researchers studying online social behaviour." (Judith Donath, New Media & Society, Vol. 6 (3), 2004)

"The book is really about something much more engaging that the title implies, and academics, researchers and teachers … will find much of what is written here of value. … It is about social spaces and social interactions on the Internet. … this book is a valuable read and I’d recommend it to anyone with a practical or research driven interest in the design, development and implementation of online spaces for social interactions." (Martyn Wild, Educational Technology and Society, Vol. 6 (4), 2003)
