Distributed Cognition

Steven Harris, Website, May 26, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Interesting and worthwhile paper. "The basic insight of the theory of distributed cognition is that cognitive phenomena generally are best understood as distributed processes... computation is conceived broadly as 'the propagation of representational state across representational media.' In a socially distributed system, people interact with artifacts to create and coordinate representations. Thus, representational state can be 'propagated' across distinct media and across different representational systems." Via Dean Groom.
