Bader, Gail and Nyce, James M. (1998): When Only the Self is Real: Theory and Practice in the Development Community. In ACM SIGDOC *Journal of Computer Documentation, 22 (1) pp. 5-10.

Bader and Nyce draw on their own experience as ethnographers advising those who develop educational software to argue that "it seems unlikely that cultural analysis [of software users] will ever become part of the tool kit developers and programmers habitually draw upon," primarily because "there is...a demonstrable, fundamental gap between the [rule-governed] knowledge the development community values and [the concrete details] which cultural analysis yields."

Beeman, William, Anderson, Kenneth M., Bader, Gail, Larkin, James, McClard, Anne, McQuillan, Patrick and Shields, Mark (1987): Hypertext and Pluralism: From Lineal to Non-Lineal Thinking. In: Weiss, Stephen and Schwartz, Mayer (eds.) Proceedings of ACM Hypertext 87 Conference November 13-15, 1987, Chapel Hill, North Carolina. pp. 67-88.

One goal of American and Northern European higher education is to promote acquisition of a pluralistic cognitive style, which has as an important property -- non-linealilty. This paper investigates the effects of using of an advanced hypertext/hypermedia system, Intermedia, to develop instructional materials for two university courses in English and Biology intended to promote acquisition of non-lineal thinking. Use of Intermedia is shown to produce significant learning effects, which are somewhat more pronounced for persons involved in developing materials than for students using the system.
