New paper by @jdfoote from my research collective!
RT @comdatasci
Online communities are deeply interconnected and interdependent.

@jdfoote argues that systems theory can help us to study interdependencies, and that online platforms have the sort of data that is enabling really exciting new research.

We are coming to Paris for next week! Check out this blog post to get stickers and see presentations by @groceryheist @carlcolglazier @FloorFiers @jdfoote @kayleachampion @makoshark and @aaronshaw! @icahdq

There are remarkable wikis beyond Wikipedia (@mako & @aaronshaw).

Software patches to online games are an excellent example.

After a software patch, the hundreds of pages on a game’s fan wikis about characters, item, and other gameplay need to be updated. There are categories enumerating separate pages about patches themselves—that’s how important patches are! 2/🧵

Add me to the list people who picked up COVID at . Positive test and all the symptoms. I had a negative PCR on a sample taken the day AFTER I returned to SEA so hopefully I didn't share it with anyone in NOLA. Test frequently and take care of yourself everybody!

Caught in the act! Presented my first CHI paper with @makoshark, @sayamindu, and @aaronshaw this year. Really rewarding experience. Thanks to everyone who attended and to all the folks in the @comdatasci lab for helping me along the journey.

Presented my paper with @makoshark and @sayamindu in !! My first in-person CHI presentation!Thanks so much for everyone who came to my talk - happy to chat more!

A "hybrid" course at in which the instructor and all registered (paying) attendees were remote. Someone was guarding the door to make sure nobody snuck in to watch the Zoom session being projected to the completely empty room.

I'll be at in New Orleans to support my group presenting their work (including awesome papers by @ReginaRCheng, @sejal_khatri, and @Stefania_druga). It's been too long! Let's meet up!

Awesome new paper by @jdfoote makes a compelling argument for a return to systems theorizing in communication research now that we have the data and methods to deliver on its promise. Check out the thread!

This new paper explains why one Wikipedia language edition engaged contributors more effectively than two others from neighboring states in India. The answer: Broader social and cultural context matters for online communities!

Happy to share my new paper with @makoshark @sayamindu that received a Best Paper Honorable Mention award at ! We studied how novices learn data structures in and identified a social feedback loop that shapes their learning. See the below blog post for more!
