      • also with external communities in 2013

        • E.g. WebSci13 workshop 1 May (Barnett/Dunbar)

        • Many virtual community concerns tied into privacy by design

    R6 3 4 exploring e democracy e voting

    R6.3/4 Exploring e-democracy/e-voting

    UNIBO lead

    Two correlated & complementary Internet roles

    consensus building process around new political actors, interest groups and/or public body initiatives.

    supporting emerging forms of political participation,

    new channel to make citizen’s voice heard.

    Online social networks and virtual communities

    as starting point for newborn political initiatives

    Conclusions

    Conclusions

    • D6.1: overview of needs analysis at M18.

    • Progress in Year 1 slowed by

      • lack of post-docs OXF and Stockholm,

      • Need to integrate Lancs, Technicolor

      • Loss (formally) of Delft, Warwick, LSE

        • All contributing informally

    • Better co-working in build-up to M18

    • Helped by OXF workshop 8 March

      • Extended physical presence in OXF Q2 2013

    Task 1 overview of user needs analysis

    Task 1: Overview of user needs analysis

    • Engaging with the individual virtual community types via both participants and community developers.

    • Developing a needs analysis based on methodologies such as

    • user experience,

    • anthropology,

    • sociology,

    • economics,

    • network analysis,

    • Explores the role of

    • bottom-up user-generated communities and

    • hierarchical or centrally controlled and coordinated communities,

    • in both commercial and community ownership.

    R6 1 overview of user needs analysis

    R6.1 Overview of user needs analysis

    UESSEX,

    With ULANC, IBBT, MLS

    Develop needs analysis

    based on methodologies such as 

    user experience, anthropology, sociology, economics, network analysis.

    Explore the role of communities

    bottom-up user-generated

    hierarchical or centrally coordinated

    in both commercial and community ownership.

    Series of events with relevant JRAs

    also with external communities.

    R6 2 mutual impact between virtual internet and human social communities

    R6.2 Mutual impact between virtual Internet and human social communities

    UESSEX,

    With CNR, ULANC, NKUA, MLS

    Analyze mutual dependence between

    virtual communities and

    underlying human social communities

    (not necessarily mediated by ICT).

    To what extent known behaviours emerge within these virtual communities as a result of properties like common interests/preferences.
