Research/paper/insights on Use of mobile technology by Professionals on the move


I'm currently working for an internal paper for my organization.

I need to collect research material on usage of mobile/technology to meet user needs, specifically of professionals that are constantly on the move. I'm also looking for content on behavioural and motivations for such professionals.

Any relative links or cues in this direction will be a great help.

Looking forward for more enriching information.

To Attend or not to attend

A couple of comments here got me thinking about conferences that address our issues and thoughts.

Personally, I don't have a problem with a good mix of academic topics mixed in with "industry tested"
practices. The theoretical academic research is very important and needed to advance our field forward - for this reason we shouldn't look down on it and should support it equally. Any intelligent person out there can take academic concepts and try their own application of the principles at work.

Talking at cross purposes of learnability vs facility

re: Should reducing number of clicks be of primary concern?

Until we have a better framework for this conversation we will continue to
talk at cross purposes. It's fascinating seeing how this process repeats
itself with such regularity, even with what must be extremely competent
thinkers. Each side entrenches more deeply into its mutually exclusive
extremes and mislabels the discussion for its own generalized worldview.

ADMIN: Reminder to trim postings

I know I am a committer of this foul, but I have been reminded that it is
proper ettiquette to try to trim your postings when you reply to use only
those aspects of the previous posts that you are directly responding to.

This has a huge benefit for those ...
1. using the digest version
2. working on slower machines
3. working on mobile devices
(I have felt this one in particular on my palm-based phone)
4. others I forgot to mention

But please! do not take this in any way to mean ... please be quiet.
the discussion has been great and amazingly informative. I love it!
