PIM Book overload part 1: Personal Information Management by William Jones, Jaime Teevan, and a cast of thousands

pimbook   Well, all of a sudden, there’s a lot of books on Personal Information Management. William Jones at UW has been particularly productive! The first book is called “Personal  Information Management”,  and is an collection of papers by many of the top researchers in the field, edited by William Jones (UW) and Jaime Teevan (MSR). Many of the papers were the result of the PIM 2006 workshop in Seattle, and are grouped into four main sections:

  1. Studies of PIM behaviour
  2. New technology – Email! search! structure! I’m particularly excited to see Diane Kelly and Jaime Teevan’s chapter on evaluation. Cool technology is one thing, seeing if it can be used, let alone helps the user, is quite another!
  3. PIM and the individual – The 2 chapters highlight individual differences between users, and how the management of personal health information is an important PIM domain.
  4. PIM and group information management

  1. When some one searches for his required thing, therefore he/she wishes to be
    available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained
    over here.

  2. I have been exploring for a little bit for any high quality articles
    or weblog posts in this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this website.
    Studying this info So i’m glad to convey that I’ve a very just right uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed.

    give it a glance on a constant basis.
