Extending the Sociocultural Perspective on Value Creation: the Role of Object Circulation in Consumer Collectives

Our four-stage framework draws from practice theory and anthropological theories of value-in-action to analyze ethnographic and netnographic data from consumers of Geocaching, a tech-mediated treasure hunting game.
