The possible effects of anytime/anyplace computing on the productivity of an important part of the work force known as knowledge workers are a significant area of speculation and a subject worthy of further exploration. Since there is little experience with omnipresent computing in knowledge work, the good and bad effects on productivity are anticipated based on the existing activities and behaviors of knowledge workers. Knowledge work is a significant portion of the work done in organizations, so productivity by knowledge workers is a matter of great concern to both organizations and individuals [3].
