Abstract:This research note describes an ongoing ethnographic study of a professional, knowledge-sharing community of information technology professionals. The overarching goal of the research is to understand the use and consequences of social information systems designed for recognizing and rewarding contri-butions to professional communities within and beyond the workplace. The research presented in this note explores the following question: How does technology mediate the performance of professional identity, and what role is played by the social institutions – e.g., the firm as employer, the firm as a market actor, the professional community, etc. – in enabling and constraining the construction of a professional identity?
