AbstractTechnology assessment approaches have traditionally occupied organizational informatics and policy-making areas. Approaches tailored to the unique characteristics of and concerns within community-based projects are lacking. Formal technology assessment processes can provide a critical bridge between observational community informatics research and technology design and development processes. This paper presents a framework adapted to community-based technology assessment processes. A survey of the field is given with discussion of adaptations required for community contexts. Performing technology assessments in partnership with communities is also discussed.
