Collaborative Conflict

I’ve been thinking a lot about collaboration and conflict lately.  I’m currently trying to wrap my head around the potentials of conflict to allow for new forms of knowledge production, especially knowledge that disrupts dominant narratives.

This video “The Negotiation of Contributions in Public Wikis” by artist and scholar Anne Goldenburg has be me thinking a lot about how we negotiate conflict and how that conflict both motivates and discourages participation and contribution. I especially love the part where  the composers or contributor get upset with each other as the others try to contribute their ideas.  I’m  curious as to how this visual representation of wiki writing will have parallels with the collaborative composition of digital media.
