Digital collectives are computer-mediated places where a large number of
people come together to interact. Back in the 80s and early 90s, users
mainly inhabited these online environments to talk with each other -
e.g. discussion lists, Usenet newsgroups, etc. Now, however, some
digital collectives focus on the creation of artifacts, the collection
and distribution of goods, and the accretion of public knowledge. This
minitrack focuses on understanding the production and consumption of
information in these spaces.

Why and how do people contribute to digital collectives? How are blogs
and wikis changing the way people use and create information? Will
millions of people adding tags to online content affect use patterns?
Now that online communities are producing goods, what do we know about
the economy of online cooperation? How are users finding, using, and
interacting with these collective repositories of information? How are
these technologies changing the ways that people work and play?

This minitrack at HICSS will focus on how people produce and consume
goods in these new social spaces - both online and off. In particular,
we are interested in work addressing the design, creation and use of
information in many settings, particularly in ways that are newly
emerging and especially innovative. We seek high quality papers across a
broad spectrum of topics in this area.
