The information flaneur

Marian Dörk, Sheelagh Carpendale, Carey Williamson
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 annual conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '11  
We introduce the information flaneur as a new human-centred view on information seeking that is grounded in interdisciplinary research.  ...  These perspectives shift information seeking towards a more optimistic outlook: the information flaneur represents curious, creative, and critical information seeking.  ...  We are also very grateful to the reviewers for their constructive feedback and suggestions. Funding was provided by SMART Technologies, NSERC, and AITF.  ...

A Review of Research Methodologies Employed in Serendipity Studies in the Context of Information Research

Xu Sun, Xiaosong Zhou, Qingfeng Wang, Sarah Sharples, Yaorun Zhang
2021 Pacific Asia Journal of the Association for Information Systems  
However, serendipitous encounters are subjective and rare in a real-world context, making this an extremely challenging subject to study.  ...  Methods: Various methods have been proposed to enable researchers to understand and measure serendipity, but there is no broad consensus on which methods to use in different experimental settings.  ...  A trigger for information encountering was embedded within the information-seeking activities to induce respondents' experiences of information encountering.  ...

Leveraging User Inspiration with Microblogging-Driven Exploratory Search [chapter]

Maria Taramigkou, Fotis Paraskevopoulos, Efthimios Bothos, Dimitris Apostolou, Gregoris Mentzas
2014 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
In creative tasks, the user expects to acquire holistic information, to explore the space of available information and to come up with diverse views before converging to a solution for the creative task  ...  We hypothesize that the implicit use of social chatter in information seeking activities can enhance the potential for novel, diverse and unexpected encounters which can in turn inspire users.  ...  This work has been partly funded by the European Commission through IST Project COLLAGE "Creativity in learning through Social Computing and Game Mechanics in the Enterprise", Grant agreement no: 318536  ...

Non-programmers identifying functionality in unfamiliar code: strategies and barriers

Paul Gross, Caitlin Kelleher
2010 Journal of Visual Languages and Computing  
Source code on the web is a widely available and potentially rich learning resource for nonprogrammers. However, unfamiliar code can be daunting to end-users without programming experience.  ...  Using these models, we describe code search strategies non-programmers employed and the difficulties they encountered.  ...  Information Foraging was introduced in the context of web navigation and posits when we search for information we rely upon "information scent" to estimate the probability of finding relevant information  ...
