Marleen Huysman and Volker Wulf have just edited a nice book on Social
Capital and Information Technology (MIT Press, 2004). I think it's the 1st
book that links the 2 in the foreground, altho many of us have done stuff
linking the 2 notions.
Among the authors/articles are a good intro/review piece by the editors;
Anita Blanchard on dispersed virtual communities and F2F social capital;
Rob Cross and Steve Borgatti on informaiton flows in corporations; Chip
Steinfeld on the (lack of) use of e-commerce in geographically defined
business clusters; Mark Ackerman & Christine Halversman on new CSCW
directions for social capital.
And Anabel Quan-Haase and Barry Wellman reviewing our research on how the
internet may affect social capital in communities online and offline.
