Description:

What motivates technology-mediated social participation? Through
improved interface design and social support, we can bring the
benefits of social media to important challenges, such as healthcare
delivery, e-commerce, business innovation, energy sustainability, and
international development.

Billions participate in online social activities. Some participate as
readers, searchers, or viewers. A fraction become contributors of
user-generated content or move beyond individual efforts to become
collaborators. Some become leaders who participate in governance by
setting and upholding policies, repairing vandalized materials, or
mentoring novices.

NYC UPA invites you to meet HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) pioneer
Ben Shneiderman as he offers the Reader-to-Leader Framework
(developed with Jennifer Preece) to help researchers and designers
understand social media and accelerate participation.

Will this be recorded, Elena? I can't be there in person, but I'd
love to hear the presentation.

Likewise... I have a big interest in this and 3000 miles is a bit far to go
for an evening event. :(

Good paper. I wish Ben could have also added applying lessons learned
from game mechanics to motivate social participation.
