Computer chips and paper clips : technology and women's employment by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

33 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 4,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, prepared by the Committee's Panel on Technology and Women's Employment, identifies and analyzes the effects of technological change on the quantity and quality of women's paid employment. Chapter 1 defines technological change, describes changes in information technologies, discusses the measurement and characteristics of technological change, and explores the economic and social context of technological change and possible employment effects. It describes women's employment situations and explains why differential effects are expected for women workers. Chapter 2 discusses selected examples of technological change in communications and information processing and considers especially its effects on women's employment levels and on the content and quality of work. Chapter 3 analyzes the current and future effects of technological change on the levels of employment and the structure of occupations and considers changes in worker supply and demand. It reviews Bureau of Labor Statistics projections, presents estimates of the most plausible worst case, and examines recent and projected shifts in the demand for various occupations. Chapter 4 analyzes the current and likely future effects of technological change on employment quality and explores the roles of managers and workers in implementing new technologies and improving employment quality. Chapter 5 offers recommendations to facilitate the mutual adaptation of technology and employment. The monograph contains a 258-item list of references and concludes with biographical sketches of dance members and staff and an index. (YLB)

Electronic mail and organizational knowledge : media use in a global corporation by Robert E Kraut( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the job is the unit of analysis, the data from this survey do not support the media richness hypothesis -- that use is determined by the fit between the richness of a medium and the degree to which people have complex, ambiguous, or social jobs. Yet when one takes a single conversation as a unit of analysis, the data show that media differing in interactivity and expressiveness are valuable for different tasks. Employees who use electronic mail extensively are better informed about their company and more committed to its management's goals. One reason for their superior knowledge about the organization seems to be that electronic mail promotes 'information spillover' from a focal recipient to others less directly interested in a message, without subjecting these marginal parties to the burdens of interruption and information overload."

Coordination in Large Scale Software Development( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Successful software development requires tight coordination among subgroups involved in the development process. Coordination is difficult because of the division of labor, interdependence and uncertainty inherent in large software projects. A survey in 65 software development projects reveals that informal communication is necessary for coordination under these circumstances. Results show that software professional got much of their information from other people. They perceived that interpersonal techniques for getting information from beyond their immediate work group were underused, while more formal procedures for tracking routine information were overused compared to their value. Technically uncertain projects and highly interdependent ones had staffs who were poorly informed and were poorly coordinated. When project members had a large network of personal contacts outside the project, information flow improved, especially when the project was uncertain. The paper concludes with organizational and technological suggestions for increasing the flow of relevant information across functional boundaries in projects

Internet paradox : a social technology that reduces social involvement and psychological well-being? by Robert E Kraut( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Internet could change the lives of average citizens as much as did the telephone in the early part of the 20th century and television in the 1950s and 1960s. Researchers and social critics are debating whether the Internet is improving or harming participation in community life and social relationships. This research examined the social and psychological impact of the Internet on 169 people in 73 households during their first 1 to 2 years on-line. We used longitudinal data to examine the effects of the Internet on social involvement and psychological well-being. In this sample, the Internet was used extensively for communication. Nonetheless, greater use of the Internet was associated with declines in participants' communication with family members in the household, declines in the size of their social circle, and increases in their depression and loneliness. These findings have implications for research, for public policy, and for the design of technology

The Relationship between Facebook Use and Well-Being depends on Communication Type and Tie Strength( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : An extensive literature shows that social relationships influence psychological well-being, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. We test predictions about online interactions and well-being made by theories of belongingness, relationship maintenance, relational investment, social support, and social comparison. An opt-in panel study of 1, 910 Facebook users linked self-reported measures of well-being to counts of respondents' Facebook activities from server logs. Specific uses of the site were associated with improvements in well-being: Receiving targeted, composed communication from strong ties was associated with improvements in well-being while viewing friends' wide-audience broadcasts and receiving one-click feedback were not. These results suggest that people derive benefits from online communication, as long it comes from people they care about and has been tailored for them
