Four people are discussing a problem looking for alternative solution. They
would converge on an idea. However, can groupware improve this? Is groupware
a person, place or thing? Thing - conduit for communication - with or without
rules, place the cyber meeting room, person - an active participant providing
focus, ideas and question to inspire group thought.
Example(s): software keeps track of idea, comments and competing arguments
- it would ask the group for opinion - how to reconcile the differences.
It would ask for comparison of benefits gained and lost for existing position
to new ideas.
