Arling has some useful work on social networks in distributed teams - not what I was thinking of, but one of my case studies has distributed members, physically located elsewhere, so Arling's work must be worth considering. How can people engage with each other if they've only met electronically?

This paper reports research; it's not just conceptual. they had three hypothesises and surveyed 254 individuals in 18 teams in 9 organizations. So she's measuring for quantitative research.
