With the advent of the e-Economy, system architectures need to take into account that Distribution and Mobility define a dimension that is not orthogonal to the traditional two - coordination and computation. In this paper, we address the way that this additional dimension interferes with coordination. First, we address the effectiveness of connectors in place in a system when the prop-erties of the media through which its components can be effectively coordinated are taken into account. Then, we consider the modelling of coordination styles that are location-dependent or even involve the management of the location of the coordinated parties.
