Johri, Aditya, Nov, Oded and Mitra, Raktim (2011): Environmental jolts: impact of exogenous factors on online community participation. In: Proceedings of ACM CSCW11 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work 2011. pp. 649-652. Available online

Few studies of online communities take exogenous factors into account while explaining community participation. We present preliminary results from a study investigating the impact of steward companies' actions on online community participation. We identified two events: (1) open sourcing of Java by Sun and (2) acquisition of Sun (and consequently of Java) by Oracle, and examined participation in their developer online communities. We found significant change in participation levels around each event with both significant increases and decreases. We conjecture that participation increased if the action was perceived as supportive by developers (e.g. Sun's open sourcing of Java) whereas it decreased if the action was perceived as detrimental by developers (e.g. Oracle's acquisition of Sun).

Singh, Vandana, Johri, Aditya and Mitra, Raktim (2011): Types of newcomers in an online developer community. In: Proceedings of ACM CSCW11 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work 2011. pp. 717-720. Available online

In this interactive paper we present preliminary results from an analysis of help seeking interactions of newcomers in an online developer community for beginners. We develop the distinctions among newcomers to create different profiles of newcomers which are often clubbed together in a homogeneous group. These profiles are generalizations of activities, behavior and attitudes of newcomers in these communities and they highlight the differences among members of this group.

Johri, Aditya, Nov, Oded and Mitra, Raktim (2011): "Cool" or "monster"?: company takeovers and their effect on open source community participation. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 327-331. Available online

In this study, we investigate the effect of takeover announcements made by open-source software (OSS) steward firms, on participation in an OSS newcomers' online community. We examine a MySQL newcomer forum before and after two takeover announcements -- the January 2008 announcement of MySQL's takeover by Sun Microsystems, and the April 2009 announcement of Sun's takeover by Oracle. We find that the impact on participation depends on how the acquiring company is perceived. The announcement of an acquisition by a company perceived as hostile had a negative effect on participation, whereas announcement of acquisition by a more friendly company was found to have no effect on participation. These changes in participation occurred without any accompanying change in the product itself, or its licensing. This work provides the evidence of the effect of external events on online participation.

Mitra, Raktim, Singh, Vandana and Johri, Aditya (2011): Cyber-learning ecosystem: tools, technology and users. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 719-721. Available online

In this poster we will present results from a study aimed at determining factors that promote newcomer participation and integration in cyber-learning environments. At this stage we present the research design and some preliminary results and at the time of presentation we will be augmenting our results presented here.
