Things To Talk about When Talking about Things.
Whittaker, Steve
Human-Computer Interaction, v18 n1-2 p149-70 2003
This commentary reviews the existing research literature concerning support for talking about objects in mediated communication, drawing three conclusions: speech alone is often sufficient for effective conversations; visual information about work objects is generally more valuable than visual information about work participants; and disjoint visual perspectives can undermine communication processes. Suggests future research. (Contains 68 references.) (Author/LRW)
