Hi All,
Does anyone know of a service/app that allows participants in remote locations to work collaboratively on an affinity diagram?

Thanks in advance,
Nina

With a tool like GoToMeeting, you can use the sticky notes tool (free
from Microsoft).

You can also use Google Spreadsheet with multiple people moving items
from cells to clusters in the spreadsheet. You need a few ground
rules, but you can do it. I've written up a technique for doing it
using the spreadsheet model (which can by synchronous or
asynchronous). Google does allow multiple people to move things
around and shows different people with different colors.

With a remote collaboration tool, you could even use PowerPoint or
tools like Inspiration (for $70). You could also push some of the
card sorting tools though those tools have some quirks that might get
in the way.

Hi Nina,

I don't know about any such service/app; i am wondering won't doing
remote be defeating the goal? you organize and re-organize, then you
group and re-group. there will be voices, comments, opinions in
between. can it be captured remotely?
