Translation: Someone Over Shoulder, Got to Go, Instant Message Me Later
College of Charleston Magazine covered Anna Fiona Cooke’s research paper entitled “Type. Send. Communicate.” in its Spring 2009 issue. Cooke, a Master of Arts in Communication candidate, explores how instant communication like text messaging shapes efficiency in the workplace. Her adviser, Doug Ferguson, encouraged to submit her paper nationally. It’s a good thing too, because she won the Graduate Student Award from the Carolina Communication Association. Since then, she has been invited by the National Communication Association to present her work in San Diego, and will be featured in the National Communications Journal.
