... in an information-rich world, the wealth of information means a dearth of something else: a scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes. What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention, and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it.

-- Herbert Simon in "Computers, Communications and the Public Interest," 1971

Oh, Kyong Eun (2012): Exploring the process of organizing personal information. In: Proceedings of the 2012 iConference 2012. pp. 433-434.

This paper presents preliminary results from a pilot study for a larger research which explores the process of organizing personal information in digital form from a cognitive sociological perspective. To collect data, a diary study and two post diary semi-structured interviews were conducted. In analyzing data, content analysis of the diary and the interviews were conducted. The initial analysis of the results showed that the process of organizing personal information in digital form consists of five stages which involve different actions, thoughts, decisions and a variety of factors that influence the decisions in each stage. In addition, individuality as well as social foundation impacted on the whole process of organizing personal information. This study deepens our understanding of information organizing behavior by providing an integrated view of the process. In addition, this study lays an empirical foundation for further study of any organizing behavior. It also has a direct contribution to the development and design of various personal information management devices, interfaces and applications that support an individual's organizing information.

Oh, Kyong Eun, Joo, Soohyung and Park, Yong Hyun (2012): Which facets are easy to use and useful in accessing consumer health information on the web?: a pilot study. In: Proceedings of the 2012 iConference 2012. pp. 480-481.

This paper presents preliminary results from our ongoing research project which explores easy to use and useful facets in accessing consumer health information on the Web. In this pilot study, first, 10 facets were identified by analyzing 10 top ranked health information websites. Then, users' perceptions of easiness and usefulness of each facet in accessing online health information were examined by conducting a survey. The preliminary results revealed that "disease" and "body part" facets are easy to use in accessing online health information, and "disease" and "department" are considered to be effective in accessing online health information.

Oh, Kyong Eun and Belkin, Nicholas J. (2011): Cross analysis of keeping personal information in different forms. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 732-733.

This paper examines keeping behavior of personal information in different forms by reviewing and analyzing previous empirical studies on keeping personal information. By adopting user-centered and cross-form perspectives, similar behaviors as well as unique behaviors in keeping different forms of personal information are reviewed and comparatively analyzed. The identification of similarities and differences of keeping behaviors among different forms of personal information widens our understanding of personal information management (PIM). The results of this study have practical implication for human computer interaction (HCI) studies in designing tools, devices and interfaces that are more effective in supporting individuals' PIM.
