An approach to supporting the user-centered design of future information and communication technologies (ICTs) is described. It will be based on an analysis of user expectations about the characteristics of different ICT systems associated with the experiences that the users have had across the eras of ICT development (pre-PC; the PC era (1983-1992); the Internet era (1993-2004); and the present era). An preliminary study of application use is described.

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.

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.

Help-giving interactions in open source technical support often involve more people than the conventional help-giver help-seeker pair. Contributions include lightweight but useful me-too contributions from fellow help-seekers. Problems with the reuse of help documentation may be resolved by contextualized discussions, and those discussions themselves are found to be substantially reused.
