Keywords: Sociotechnical systems, research agenda, collective action networks, online communication networks, organizaltional dynamics.
Starting from the four comments, I here outline the overall contours of a much-needed
research agenda to face the challenges that derive from three inherent features of sociotechnical
processes: their diversity, generated by the simultaneous involvement of social and technical
agencies; their dynamics, stemming from the continuous evolution and change of both social
actors and technologies; and their complexity, as relations established amongst and between
social actors and technologies deploy recursively across the online/offline boundary. Thus, I
argue that this overall research programme should be tuned specifically to meet the peculiarities
of collective action phenomena.
