Two issues were created, the first focusing on ethnomethodological studies of work, the second on ethnographic studies of programming. The papers on TeamEthno were all work-in-progress; many represent early versions of work that has gone on to be published in quality journals elsewhere.

  3. Patterns Of Cooperative Interaction

    This website is a collection of patterns arising out of the Patterns of Cooperative Interaction project. This project, situated at Lancaster, sought to specifically address how similar findings from different ethnographic field studies of work and technology can be extracted from those studies and compared and contrasted. As ethnographers of some years experience we are aware that we see similar phenomena and practices arising from similar arrangements of work in different settings. Patterns are meant to be a way of making our knowledge of this more visible and accessible for a range of practitioners. Hopefully, this provides a new and more simple point of access to a range of studies and will serve to introduce the reader to some of the sensitivities we, as ethnographers, routinely consider.
