Users lost (summary)

Tafko Saracevic
1997 Proceedings of the 20th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '97  
This is a personal reflection on my own work and interests over the span of three and a half decade% on my discipline, information science, and on the limits that this discipline, or any other enterprise  ...  The impact of information science on other areas is limited. The issue for the future is how to increase that impact.  ...

Lost or found? Discovering data needed for research [article]

Kathleen Gregory, Paul Groth, Andrea Scharnhorst, Sally Wyatt
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We examine the data needs and discovery strategies of respondents, propose a typology for data reuse and probe the role of social interactions and literature search in data discovery.  ...  Specifically, we consider how to design for a diversity of practices, how communities of use can serve as an entry point for design and the role of metadata in supporting both sensemaking and social interactions  ...  based on "user profiles;" there is also often a gap between the user profiles which designers imagine and the actual users themselves (see Wyatt, 2008 ).  ...

The entrepreneur is taking a gamble on the future and the future is not perfectly known or knowable.  ...  Similarly, in social sciences and there is much confusion between the concrete space on the one hand, and the abstract space we use to conceptualise phenomena on the other.  ...

In Search of Lost QoS [article]

Kalevi Kilkki, Benjamin Finley
2019 arXiv   pre-print
To help elucidate these issues, in this work, we first perform a comprehensive review of QoS including a general overview and an analysis of both influential and critical work from the past 30 years.  ...  So far, the few critical QoS papers have had only a minor effect on QoS research and standardization.  ...  The mindset when dealing with problems of controlling traffic load was limited to well-defined IP packets and the somewhat obscure concept of flow without much reflection on quality of service.  ...

Property Lost in Translation

Abraham Bell, Gideon Parchomovsky
2012 Social Science Research Network  
Translation costs result from incompatibilities, as well as information and enforcement costs.  ...  This Article provides the first comprehensive look at the phenomenon of localized property systems and the difficulties that necessarily attend the translation of localized property rights.  ...  Disputes often arise when users deviate from the expected time limits. Other areas allow allocation of the space but on a more informal basis.  ...
