Hello,

A student of mine is looking for some references on the social implications 
of ubiquitious computing and connectivity. The sort of issue she is 
concerned with is the way in which behaviours change (or don't change) when 
there is an expectation that people can be contacted at anytime (e.g. via 
cell phone or e-mail). This is one of those issues that has been written 
about, but it's a bit hard to find without knowing the terminology that was 
used when discussing it.

If you can give us any pointers as to where to find discussion of this 
topic it would be much appreciated. Please respond to me directly and I 
will pass the information along to my student.

Thank you,
catherine middleton
