Critical Commentary

Abstract: This piece on collaboration takes a quasi-autoethnographic form to propose a loose framework for reflection on the dimensions of responsibility inherent in any iterative collaborative work. It is not prescriptive—there are no formulas or frameworks to standardize responsibility in collaborative analytics. But there is a qualitative gap in which we can digest the gravity of what we do with knowledge produced from the gambits we throw out there, which miraculously (in some instances) create new opportunities.
