Technologies for Supporting Reasoning Communities and Collaborative Decision Making: Cooperative Approaches | Published : 2010


The popularity of the Internet, coupled with a reduction in traditional community participation has resulted in maturation in the way that people use Web 2.0 technologies to support communities. Reasoning communities come together to make decisions or form courses of action on particular topics. This chapter investigates how traditional Web (1.0), Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 technologies can be used to support the four phases of the process that reasoning communities typically undergo to achieve their results.
