Abstract

The use of computer mediated communication to support team work across different organisations and countries presents a distinct work environment in which cultures from different countries, and professions come together. In addition to the national and professional cultures, the electronic work environment has embedded within it a technology culture. This paper presents the use of a particular type of electronic communications technology that supports group interaction among a set individuals communicating from different parts of the world. The paper employs a structurational perspective on culture to analyze behaviours that emerge on an electronic social space and explores the creation of patterns of relations on the electronic communication media. It concludes with a discussion of implications for cross–cultural end user computing.
