In focus: Komen case study, theory of collaboration, current examples

For my research curation about determinants of the success of online collaboration, I want to start by viewing the information I gather in terms of three categories (allowing for the possibility of additions and changes later, of course).

1. Case Study: Susan G. Komen’s Planned Parenthood funding decision reversal

I will follow the story as it continues to unfold as well as dig up the records of the decision for as far back as I can find them. Additionally, I will try to find what others are speculating about what affected the situation.

2. Developing a theory of online collaboration

I’d like this to be made up of scholarly articles and sources that discuss what makes for successful collaboration and how that’s been changed/shaped by the internet and the technologies that have developed from it.

3. Current Examples

What’s happening today that demonstrates the power and limits of collaboration online?

Feel free to share any links you find that you think fit into the scope of my research…
