1. Collaborative Behaviours in E-Participation Noella Edelmann, Peter Parycek 2. 1. Why & How? 3. Why Now? Welcome in the social web Clay Sharky Not a hype it fulfills natural human social needs! 1. Phase linking information 2. Phase linking social relationships 4. Why do they produce? culture of generosity is the backbone of the internet Tapscott & Williams 2006 investment for future returns + status + personal visibility + external promotion + to be up-to-date + BUT 5. How to govern participation? netiquette all behaviour is motivated process & model design discussion/deliberation/participation/collaboration 6. 2. Hyperlinks, Communities & Crowds 7. Hyperlinking affects the size and shape of the public sphere, expresses social relationships, has shifted the dynamics of human conversation. 8. hyperlinks are becoming the currency and connective tissue of the networked society 9. continued efforts of known participants high commitment of individual to the collective, Community vs. Crowd talents of many (relatively) anonymous individuals isolated, minimal, discrete, objective and often anonymous contributions they do not have to engage directly with each other 10. 3. Opportunities, Limits, Risks & Tensions 11. Opportunities Improvement of efficacy, capacity and legitimacy Modernization of government service delivery Interaction with citizens Activation of citizens to participate in networks and dialogues Access to new ideas and expertise Profounder and deeper understanding of citizens. Public value through any combination of public agencies, the private sector, community groups or citizens 12. Limits internet not normal way of life knowledge time culture & language (especially in Europe) 13. Risks quality? an overload of initiatives too many other opportunities low levels of commitment & interest digital divide chaos of useless information manipulated public opinion democracy is ruled by mob and rumour 14. Tension: consume more than contribute opinion sway, majority and minority group effects Hierarchical structures vs. virtualized environment E-Participation & Collaboration need transparency 15. Thanks! Noella, Peter
