This thesis describes the current research that has been done on governments in communication and opportunities within organizational communication, then offers an example of research that could expand this area of scholarship. The content analysis of U.S. Digital Services' forums on GitHub, a software development website used for open coding projects, investigates communication genres and genre systems through a codebook of genre norms (Im,Yates, & Orlikowski, 2005) to analyze the temporal aspects of communication design as a theoretical perspective and the practical implications of considering time scale in coordination, collaboration, and idea generation. Temporal landmarks led to four specific patterns in forum participation, and the temporal foci of proposed ideas were overwhelmingly in the present. Third, it calls for a new model of communication, one that does not use a process definition of communication.
