Summary: An ethnomethodological study of information-seeking activity by SICU nurses. Reddy et al. proposed a trajectory/rhythm/horizon model to describe the sociotemporal dimensions of distributed work in the context of 24/7 shifts when workers are not co-located.
Synthesis: The study responds to a body of related CSCW literature on distributed work practices where distance dominates and spatiotemporal dimensions are entangled. Reddy et al., draw from a largely unexplored perspective that parses temporal perspectives from the spatial in order to better understand how people collaborate during information-seeking activities.
