Experiences in an Exploratory Distributed Organization
Nov 19, 1999
There were using technology that today is somewhat limited such as half-duplex audio, slow network connections, and low quality video. The limitations of these technologies could have augmented the negative issues encountered with the system. From reading the article it seems that the video wall provided adequate Organizational support, regular Cognitive support, and bar-to-regular Social support.
Interesting points that this work presented include the observation of how the video wall supported existing social relationships, but did not support the emergence of new social relationships.
Another interesting point that might need more study is the audio versus video orientation observed. Can these observations be generalized?
