I'll be teaching a course on personal information management

I'll be teaching my first online distance course this summer for the Graduate School of  Library and Information Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaigne on Personal Information Management:

How do individuals interact with the complicated streams of information directed at them and flowing from them? What theoretical constructs have been developed to model these interactions? What practical techniques are used to help people deal with their information? This course will address these question through the lens of personal information management (PIM), an emerging area of inquiry. In addition to reviewing the research literature around PIM, students will create prototypes of solutions that they design to address a specific problem faced by individuals in managing their information.

I plan to draw from the excellent book by William Jones:  Keeping Found Things Found: The Study and Practice of Personal Information Management. 1st ed. Morgan Kaufmann, 2007. ) Has anyone out there read it?
