Last week I participated in the ACM CSCW workshop on the “sharing economy”. It was a great group of folks with solid ideas and insights. The workshop organizers published all of the papers on the Sharing Economy: future of platforms as a site of work website. Here is a direct link to my paper: Dustin O’Hara, The Double Bind: Social Values and Design Choices
One of the curious experiences of CSCW 2016 was encountering the telepresence robots as they moved about the conference. The photos above show one of the robots going into the main room of the conference, with a person holding the door open for them. The robots are coming!
