IT'S GOOD TO ARGUE AND BAD TO FIGHT
Dr. Leon Watts
Department of Computation, UMIST
When people talk as individuals, they need only consider their own personal
interests and those of the people to whom they are talking. However, people
often end up fighting corners on behalf of the groups to which they belong.
It may be that mediating technologies can be designed to selectively reveal
aspects of identity that encourage productive discussion and inhibit
entrenched diatribe. This proposition will be considered in the context of a
case study of mediated communication among Indonesian NGOs.
