The article outlines the issues that the internet presents to death studies. Part 1 describes a range of online practices that may affect dying, the funeral, grief and memorialization, inheritance and archaeology; it also summarizes the kinds of research that have been done in these fields. Part 2 argues that these new online practices have implications(More)
In the complexity of modern, computerised systems, the current system state can come as an unpleasant shock to even an experienced user. The dominant thinking in this field [Palmer, 1995, Palmer et al, 1993, Degani et al, 1996, Rushby 1999] suggests that much of this "automation surprise" [Palmer 1995] comes as a result of mode error. In this paper, we will(More)
In the contextual complexity of modern, computerised systems, the current system state can come as an unpleasant shock to even an experienced user. In this paper, we show that errors, which occur within such complexity, cannot easily be described in terms of individual tasks and their component actions. We use this starting point to examine the dominant(More)
Teaching programming is much more like teaching a craft skill than it is a purely theoretical subject. Hence an "apprenticeship" model, where apprentices learn by watching the master do, and then do themselves, and are criticised in their doing, is, we claim, more appropriate than the "lecturer/ lecturee" model that universities implicitly adopt.(More)
In this paper we present an analysis of the complexities of large group collaboration and its application to develop detailed requirements for collaboration schema for Autonomous Systems (AS). These requirements flow from our development of a framework for collaboration that provides a basis for designing, supporting and managing complex collaborative(More)
This workshop brings together a community of researchers and practitioners to identify and develop the research agenda needed to enhance human interaction with increasingly powerful and independent intelligent systems e.g. sensors networks, autonomous systems, agents and robotic systems. These systems have applications in many domains including health,(More)
In this paper we present an analysis of the complexities of large group collaboration that provides a basis for designing, supporting and managing complex collaborative systems that can be applied in various real world settings. We introduce the concepts of ‘collaborative flow’ and ‘working as one’ as descriptive expressions of successful collaborations.(More)
