Most studies of software evolution have been performed on systems developed within a single company using traditional management techniques. With the widespread availability of several large software systems that have been developed using an " open source " development approach, we now have a chance to examine these systems in detail, and see if their… (More)
The Consequences of technostress for end users in organizations: Conceptual development and empirical validation" (2008). T he research reported in this paper studies the phenomenon of technostress, that is, stress experienced by end users of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), and examines its influence on their job satisfaction, commitment… (More)
Our recent work has addressed how and why software systems evolve over time, with a particular emphasis on software architecture and open source software systems [2, 3, 6]. In this position paper, we present a short summary of two recent projects.First, we have performed a case study on the evolution of the Linux kernel , as well as some other open… (More)

Exploring the factors that may lead to the inability of professionals to adapt or cope with emerging IS in a healthy manner.
The sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus is a model organism for study of the genomic control circuitry underlying embryonic development. We examined the complete repertoire of genes expressed in the S. purpuratus embryo, up to late gastrula stage, by means of high-resolution custom tiling arrays covering the whole genome. We detected complete spliced… (More)
Research and practice in the application of software architecture has reaffirmed the need to consider software systems from several distinct points of view. Previous work by Kruchten  and Hofmeister et al.  suggests that four or five points of view may be sufficient: the logical view (i.e., the domain object model), the (static) code view, the… (More)
We report the sequence and analysis of the 814-megabase genome of the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, a model for developmental and systems biology. The sequencing strategy combined whole-genome shotgun and bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) sequences. This use of BAC clones, aided by a pooling strategy, overcame difficulties associated with… (More)
