The study deals with the organizational attention of the individual knowledge worker, from the cognitive psychology and organizational sociology points of view, as we believe that understating attention is a key factor to increasing productivity and efficiency in our information overloaded age. We focus on Computer-Mediated-Communication, and try to offer an attention supportive visual interface as an intelligent interface to better address these attention needs.
