You might find the following JCMC article relevant:

Carlson, S., and Anderson, B. (2007). What are data? The many kinds 
of data and their implications for data re-use. Journal of 
Computer-Mediated Communication, 12(2), article 15. 

Some of the other contributions to that issue of JCMC also relate to 
(qualitative) data sharing and collaboration.
