Kraut, Robert E., Morris, James H., Telang, Rahul, Filer, Darrin, Cronin, Matt and Sunder, Shyam (2002): Markets for attention: will postage for email help?. In: Churchill, Elizabeth F., McCarthy, Joe, Neuwirth, Christine and Rodden, Tom (eds.) Proceedings of the 2002 ACM conference on Computer supported cooperative work November 16 - 20, 2002, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. pp. 206-215.

Balancing the needs of information distributors and their audiences has grown harder in the age of the Internet. While the demand for attention continues to increase rapidly with the volume of information and communication, the supply of human attention is relatively fixed. Markets are a social institution for efficiently balancing supply and demand of scarce resources. Charging a price for sending messages may help discipline senders from demanding more attention than they are willing to pay for. Price may also help recipients estimate the value of a message before reading it. We report the results of two laboratory experiments to explore the consequences of a pricing system for electronic mail. Charging postage for email causes senders to be more selective and send fewer messages. However, recipients did not use the postage paid by senders as a signal of importance. These studies suggest markets for attention have potential, but their design needs more work.

Neuwirth, Christine, Morris, James H., Regli, Susan Harkness, Chandhok, Ravinder and Wenger, Geoffrey C. (1998): Envisioning Communication: Task-Tailorable Representations of Communication in Asynchronous Work. In: Poltrock, Steven and Grudin, Jonathan (eds.) Proceedings of the 1998 ACM conference on Computer supported cooperative work November 14 - 18, 1998, Seattle, Washington, United States. pp. 265-274.

This paper reports on our efforts to improve interfaces for asynchronous communication in which a group is communicating to solve a problem. We report results from an observational study and an experiment and use them as a basis for drawing design requirements: task-tailorable representations, emergent representations, emergent sharing, public/private elements in a layout, incremental formalization, and asynchronous awareness. We describe an approach and prototype that embodies some of the key requirements.

Neuwirth, Christine, Kaufer, David S., Chandhok, Ravinder and Morris, James H. (1994): Computer Support for Distributed Collaborative Writing: Defining Parameters of Interaction. In: Proceedings of the 1994 ACM conference on Computer supported cooperative work October 22 - 26, 1994, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States. pp. 145-152.

This paper reports research to define a sat of interaction parameters that collaborative writers will find useful. Our approach is to provide parameters of interaction and to locate the decision of how to set the parameters with the users. What is new in this paper is the progress we have made outlining task management parameters, notification, scenarios of use, as well as some implementation architectures.

John, Bonnie E. and Morris, James H. (1993): HCI in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. In: Ashlund, Stacey, Mullet, Kevin, Henderson, Austin, Hollnagel, Erik and White, Ted (eds.) Proceedings of the ACM CHI 93 Human Factors in Computing Systems Conference April 24-29, 1993, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. pp. 49-50.

People use computers to accomplish tasks. Consequently, understanding human capabilities and tasks is as important to the design of computer systems as understanding computer technologies. The School of Computer Science (SCS) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) has become home to an interdisciplinary community that performs research on HCI issues, develops systems using HCI methods of design and evaluation, and trains students in the theory and skills necessary to become HCI professionals.

Neuwirth, Christine, Chandhok, Ravinder, Kaufer, David S., Erion, Paul, Morris, James H. and Miller, Dale (1992): Flexible Diff-ing in a Collaborative Writing System. In: Proceedings of the 1992 ACM conference on Computer-supported cooperative work November 01 - 04, 1992, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. pp. 147-154.

An important activity in collaborative writing is communicating about changes to texts. This paper reports on a software system, flexible diff, that finds and reports differences ("diffs") between versions of texts. The system is flexible, allowing users to control several aspects of its operation including what changes are reported and how they are shown when they are reported. We argue that such flexibility is necessary to support users' different social and cognitive needs.

Neuwirth, Christine, Kaufer, David S., Chandhok, Ravinder and Morris, James H. (1990): Issues in the Design of Computer Support for Co-Authoring and Commenting. In: Halasz, Frank (ed.) Proceedings of the 1990 ACM conference on Computer-supported cooperative work October 07 - 10, 1990, Los Angeles, California, United States. pp. 183-195.

This paper reports on a project to develop a "work in preparation" editor, or PREP editor, to study co-authoring and commenting relationships. As part of the project, we have identified three issues in designing computer support for co-authoring and commenting: (1) support for social interaction among co-authors and commenters; (2) support for cognitive aspects of co-authoring and external commenting; and (3) support for practicality in both types of interaction. For each of these issues, the paper describes the approach the PREP editor takes to address them.
