N2 - Fieldwork is a complex form of work, whereas a software project can be considered largely as a collaborative and sometimes distributed form of work. How then does the inevitably situated nature of work account for the subjective orderliness-messiness of socio-cultural attributes of the Nigerian context? This short reflection points to the implications of ‘consciousness switching’ – knowing and doing work as an understand-er and us-er – which emphasises the need for focusing attention on the conditioning of the field in understanding occasions that can better inform project work.
