I just returned from the National Communication Association conference in New Orleans. I presented research on using text messaging to notify people of emergencies, the use of Twitter for technical communication, organizational meetings, and training and development. It is so interesting to get to see the diversity of research being presented that focuses on communication! I got several ideas for my graduate class on Organizational Technology that I will present in the Spring of 2012. I also talked with many people about my new undergraduate class beginning the fall of 2012 on organizational meetings.

Is your reserch available for public view? Id so I would be very interested to have a read on your “text messaging to notify people of emergencies” as this is what I have been working in for a number of years.
Do you have a twitter account I can follow?
Seconding the request for a twitter feed. With the second incident in WV, this topic is getting a lot of attention. My reading has indicated a layered response – with one-touch activation – is the most promising approach. Would like to check your research as well. Thanks.
I agree that this is an important topic. My first paper out of the data is under review at a journal, but if you email me I can send you a copy of the conference paper. My twitter is @keristephens but I don’t tweet much because I am writing and teaching a fair bit. Thanks!
