Hi everyone, I subscribed to this community a while ago, but only received a post today...did not think it was active. funny when we get caught up by the technology :)
Happy to see that there are people interested in this. I study open source development and how users from civil society and social enterprise engage over time. Currently I am a postdoc associate at LSE, leading research in three overlapping research streams:
1 Open Code as Infrastructure (commons);
2 Information Platforms and knowledge production online;
3 and open code and Technology sustainability -notably for for civil society and social enterprise.
These themes have emerged and developed following my PhD entitled ‘A Biography of Open Source Software: Community Participation and Individuation of Open Source Code in the Context of Microfinance NGOs in North Africa and the Middle East’. 
I am happy to talk more about what I did in the thesis if anyone is interested...

Introduction
I am interested to know How knowledge-productive communities are organised through online and open information platforms. Particularly how long-term open code development is organised in heterogeneous communities including social businesses and civil society? Can they potentially generate a sustainable dynamic for learning and building knowledge?Can we build a research strategy combining quantitative (visualisation mostly), and qualitative research techniques in order to create a double macro-micro zoom?
