Community computing and the computing community
Proceedings ACM SIGUCCS User Services Conference
We explore briefly the historical notion of community, and indicate how technology is changing our view of what constitutes a community. We then examine the kinds of value (information, communication and service) that can be and "ought to" be delivered over computer networks, and suggest adaptations of current network structures that could deliver these values effectively and efficiently. The focus will be on the local geographical community, and on the nature of interconnections between local communities. Finally, we consider technological and social challenges inherent in providing community computing and networking.
