A Discussion Of Selected Aspects Of Privacy, Confidentiality, And Anonymity In Computerized Conferencing, Computerized Conferencing & Communications Center, Robert Bezilla

Computerized Conferencing and Communications Center Reports

This paper presents a discussion of the potential uses of privacy, confidentiality and anonymity in computerized conferencing.

Section I begins with definitions of the concepts, their aspects and allied terms; and briefly discusses their use in general communications and problem-solving activities.

Section II explores their use in social research, particularly the survey method, a field that may yield useful analogues for computerized conferencing.

Section III outlines the various functions of privacy, confidentiality and anonymity that have been proposed for their constructive use in computerized conferencing.

Section IV reports various difficulties and compromises that have been encountered to date in striving ...

Computerized Conferencing and Communications Center Reports

Computerized Conferencing is a new form of communication in which the participants type their comments into a computer terminal, and receive their instructions and the comments of others printed on their terminal. This is a report on the results of a pilot study which was aimed mainly at exploring and solving the methodological problems presented by the need to adapt the procedures for conducting and coding face-to-face discussions to studies of this new medium. It represents the first set of controlled experiments on group discussions via a computerized conference.

The independent variable in this pilot study was mode of communication ...
