Essays on volunteer mobilization in peer production by Benjamin Mako Hill( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Although some examples of Internet-based collaborative "peer production" -- like Wikipedia and Linux -- build large volunteer communities and high-quality information goods, the vast majority of attempts at peer production never even attract a second contributor. This dissertation is composed of three essays that describe and test theories on the sources and effects of volunteer mobilization in peer production. The first essay is a qualitative analysis of seven attempts to create English-language online collaborative encyclopedia projects started before January 2001, when Wikipedia was launched. Analyzing data from interviews of these Wikipedia-like projects' initiators, along with extensive archival data, I offer a set of three propositions for why Wikipedia, similar to previous efforts and a relatively late entrant, attracted a community of hundreds of thousands while the other projects did not. In the second essay, I use data from the Scratch online community -- a large website where young people openly share and remix animations and games -- to present evidence of a trade-off between "generativity" (i.e., qualities of work products likely to attract follow-on contributors) and the originality of the derivative work products that follow. In the third essay, I consider the relationship between volunteer mobilization and governance in peer production organizations. Although large successful peer production projects have inspired scholars and social movements, I use longitudinal data of internal processes drawn from a population of wikis to show that, like other democratic organizations, peer production projects exhibit governance consistent with Robert Michels' "Iron Law of Oligarchy."
Cooperation in parallel : a tool for supporting collaborative writing in diverged documents by Benjamin Mako Hill( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis builds on theory from the fields of computer supported cooperative work and computer supported collaborative writing and the example of work in the free and open source software development communities to describe "cooperation in parallel"--A mode of collaborative writing among parties with diverged goals and distinct documents. It examines the social and technological requirements of cooperation in parallel for writing and considers the effectiveness of existing technologies ability to address them. It then presents the design and evaluation of TextNet: a wiki for document writing that uses techniques from software development including branch creation and tracking features and introduces a text-specific interface for merging changes and representing and resolving conflicts. It concludes by arguing that TextNet makes important steps toward the support cooperation in parallel for writing
