Abstract. The paper intends to show, thanks to STS perspective, how ITC technologies contribute to the formation and sharing of scientific knowledge as it is being produced. Also the paper intends to investigate the process by which meanings are constructed in scientific practice through the use of web technologies. In particular, the use of Skype allows the sharing and communication of materials, texts and images, which are able to construct scientific knowledge. The contribution presents the case of Skype usage among researchers (molecular biologists and experts in nanotechnology) who, for the first time, observe and comment on the results of their own experiments.

Abstract. The paper intends to show, thanks to STS perspective, how ITC technologies contribute to the formation and sharing of scientific knowledge as it is being produced. Also the paper intends to investigate the process by which meanings are constructed in scientific practice through the use of web technologies. In particular, the use of Skype allows the sharing and communication of materials, texts and images, which are able to construct scientific knowledge. The contribution presents the case of Skype usage among researchers (molecular biologists and experts in nanotechnology) who, for the first time, observe and comment on the results of their own experiments.
