For a book that I am co-authoring, Wenhong Chen, Anna Brady and I are
gathering research literature (and good lit reviews) about the use of new
media (ICTs, cellphones) at work. SOme comparisons to old media -- face to
face, landline phone, letters -- would be useful too.

This is not my area of expertise, so I apologize if you know the obvious
and I don't.

We're interested in three categories:

a. communication within an organization (such as Anabel Quan-Haase and I
did in our hyperconnected networks paper). Including distributed work (and
yes we know about the Bailey, etc book)

b. communication between organizations

c. communication while at work with friends, family, etc. (probably the
hardest to find).

To save space, could you send all responses to my associate Anna Brady
( anna.brady at utoronto.ca ). We'll collate and post in a few weeks.

For this, much thanks.
