Description/Abstract

Motivated by the significant amount of successful collaborative problem solving activities on the Web, we ask: Does the accumulated information propagation behaviour on the Web form a giant machine? In this paper we elaborate on a thesis about the computational capability embodied in information sharing activities that happen on the Web, which we term socio-technical computation. Socio-technical computation does not only reflect explicitly conditional activities but also the organic potential residing in information on the Web. As a foundation for this theory we propose an information cascades model that is independent from any underlying system-specific or social network features
