Appreciating context in social informatics: from the outside in, and the inside outCole, Fletcher (2006)This is a submission to the "Interrogating the social realities of information and communications systems pre-conference workshop, ASIST AM 2006". Context is a key idea in the definition of social informatics.

This paper sketches the divergent ways in which context is understood.
