SAVE THE DATE: Montreal, August 10, 2006

  View Printable Version 
For many of us some of the most productive conference experiences happen at roundtables. The roundtable format offers a degree of collaboration, openness and spontaneity that other formats often lack. As productive as these exchanges can be, this format also has a significant drawback. The collective intelligence of such sessions is ephemeral, located in the handwritten notes, remembered comments and flashes of insight of a limited number of participants.

CITASA MC 2.0 will be an experiment to see if online collaborative technology (most likely a site combining features of a forum and a Wiki) affords a means to preserve the strengths of a roundtable format, while at the same time providing a measure of permanence and record.

CITASA -- The Middle Years

CITASA NewsCommunication and Information Technologies:
A History of the Middle Years
Grant Blank
American University

Abstract: The American Sociological Association section on Sociology and Computing, as it was named from 1995-2002, faced repeated challenges during the decade of the 1990s. This paper traces changes in the sociological audiences concerned with computing during that decade and discusses how they influenced the way the section coped with the routinization of computer use in sociology, the rise of Microsoft Windows, the increasing use of computers in teaching, and the rise of the Internet.
