Abstract

This poster critically examines the concept of a social machine and redefines it in environmental terms as a social commodity designed as an intervention in the web ecosystem. Its effectiveness will depend on the predictions and understanding of the social and technical environment it is placed it. Study of the concept of the social machine clears the way for gaining an understanding of the social construct which is critical for web development. The nature of the social construct in web development in web science is discussed using analogies from environmental science and some areas in need of research are suggested.
