Matching partners: tools for social browsing that take people as texts.

  The paper describes an emerging research agenda, and some of the preliminary conceptualisations for social browsers than can assist group members who may wish to accomplish tasks together, but are unaware of each other. It is likely that the problem of myopia, and the proposed solution -a prosthesis in the form of a social browser or pertner lens to improve visibility- will be of increasing relevance in networked and distributed communities where temporary systems are the norm
