The problems society faces today are increasingly complex and rooted in likewise complex socio-technical systems. Unfortunately, the structures meant to face these challenges are not suitably equipped. There is a mismatch between the need and the capacity to respond. Design methods and approaches are now being employed to help capacitate cities and...

Article
This paper raises the question whether Web 2.0 can be seen as a technological or a social innovation and which interdependencies exist between these two innovative aspects of the phenomenon. For that purpose, the definition of Web 2.0 as a tag cloud (for example given in Wikipedia) or as a difference in comparison to a ‘Web 1.0’ is revisited, chall...
Chapter
Seit 2004 präsentiert sich das ‚Web 2.0‘ als neue Entwicklung, die – folgt man jeweils euphorischen oder kritischen Stimmen – nicht mehr und nicht weniger bietet als die endgültige Durchsetzung wahrer Demokratie oder: gar nichts Neues. Beide Perspektiven haben übrigens nachvollziehbare Argumente; doch dazu später. Fakt ist: Der Begriff des Web 2.0...
