  Subject: [Air-l] request for leads on online behavior


  I am working on a paper looking at some aspects of online behavior. Does anyone have leads in terms of papers, books, articles etc. for me in the following areas: 

  1. Online group problem solving 

  2. Interpersonal dynamics in online groups 

  3. Cases of online community building that provided tangible results in the respective communities. 

  Thanks  in advance and I look forward to hearing you all.
