My name is Andria Karaolia and i am a postgraduate student at
Lancaster University. I am doing the MSc in Information Technology,
Management and Organisational Change.

Currently i am doing my dissertation with title: Online Communities of
Practice: "The role of narratives in knowledge sharing". This
dissertation aims to study different online communities such as Ubuntu
community and examine whether or not such online communities present
opportunities for knowledge sharing. To do this i need to examine how
individuals become members/developers and mentors of Ubuntu community, how they
contribute to development and how development issues are solved.

I have already found some information on Ubuntu site but i would like
to conduct some interviews to gain further insight to the community's
processes. I was wondering if you could kindly participate. I know
your time is limited however i would appreciate it if you could take
some time to answer these 10 questions i have attached.

Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely,
Andria Karaolia
