Abstract

quote from the presentation: "What we wanted to do with our study was to build on the prior research literature: we wanted to take a qualitative glance at how people in contemporary, heterogeneous communications environments-especially those involved in collaborative enterprises--were handling multiple communication events and the incoming and outgoing products of their communications, for example, texts, files, e-texts parked on shared file servers, e-texts parked on a user's hard-disk, web pages and useful http addresses, all of those sorts of things."
