Subject: New: Effects of Technology on Communication

Having just had an unpleasant exchange with a university administrator, in which I
wrote a complex letter on a computer, and he replied with a very brief answer on
a Blackberry, I am wondering if anyone has studied the effects of Blackberries.

The basic questions are these:

1. What is the effect of communication when one party can write extensively, but
the other one can only give short replies, and cannot interlard questions and
replies because of space limits.

2. What is the effect on complexity of communication of a medium designed for
use while in motion or doing other things?

I am using Bialystok's Model of Second Language Learning (1978) and I was
wondering if there is any other model by her or anyone else that is newer.
I like that model (http://www.melta.org.my/ET/1991/img/10.jpg) because it
gathers explicit, implicit and ''other'' knowledge in the learning process,
and it gives room for ''monitoring'' with two types of response...but
still, it is almost 30 years old. I do not seem to find anything newer than
that, but I do not seem to finds lots of references to this model, either.
Anyone can help me? Thanks.
