{\includegraphics*{}}Dominic S J Stanyer was born in London town, England and received a B.Eng. in software engineering from the University of Sheffield, and a M.Sc. degree in computation from the University of Oxford. He is presently a Ph.D. student in the Division of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, where he is researching human interaction within distributed information spaces.


Dr. Rob Procter is a senior lecturer in the Division of Informatics, Edinburgh University. His research interests lie principally in the field of human factors, particularly computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), and methodologies for the design and implementation of IT systems. His current research includes computer-aided mammography, collaborative environments for digital libraries, social and collaborative filtering techniques, and social learning processes in IT systems implementation.
