The talk is preceded by an informal gathering with cookies, tea, and coffee, available at 1:15pm. There will be an informal meeting with graduate students following the talk.
We invite you to attend the RKCSI talk with Jonathan Grudin. He will be in town November 10 and 11. We would be happy to schedule a meeting with Jonathan if you like. Email Kelly McNamara (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a meeting with him.
For several years I have studied enterprise attitudes toward and uses of technologies that are primarily used by students and consumers, such as instant messaging, weblogs, wikis, and social networking sites. Email took decades to move from research and student use to full acceptance in enterprises. Today, communication and collaboration tools can make that transition far more quickly, but not instantaneously and not without encountering some of the same hurdles and other new challenges. In this talk I describe some patterns that have emerged and fit them into relevant literature on the social psychology of groups and organizational behavior.
