Seb Paquet (also linking to User-Centric Distributed Social Software by Eric Gradman):
For about a year now, I’ve had the phrase “Personal Interaction Manager” intermittently sticking in and out of my mind. Never took the time to define it, but something keeps telling me this is what I really need. Talk about fuzzy logic. As I write this, Google returns zero hits for the phrase. (I have a hunch that this will change soon. :)
This is one more thing heavily connected to my PhD thinking. I’m interested in understanding “what do we do when we do knowledge work?” or as I put it now personal productivity in knowledge-intensive environment, and I’m constantly coming across things called personal something management (sometimes “personal” is implicit).
Things that I came across that have to do something with my PhD questions:
- personal knowledge management
- personal information management
- contact management
- conversation management (e.g. Whittaker et al, 2002 – Managing long term conversations: Conversation and contact management)
- relation management
- idea management
- time management
- more specific things: managing YASN profiles, paper archives, e-mails, bookmarks, scientific references…
I’ll probably add a bit more links later…
