What will the age of the telephone-computer be like? In this thesis we present an answer to this question. We will base this answer on a conceptual framework being developed by the research group in which this work has been done, namely the Caltech/NCR Project; the work of this Project is embodied in the New World of Computing System. This framework will be stated as a paradigm for human information activities. The main contributions of this thesis are, first, an examination of the implications of this framework for the communication aspects of information processing. The second is the design of the communication aspects of the New World of Computing System, reflecting the results of this examination. The System, in its totality, provides a computer environment for the telephone computer age.

Additional Information:© 1992 California Institute of Technology. Submitted August 19, 1992. I would like to express my gratitude towards NCR Corporation for its generous personal support during the final research. I am particularly indebted to Mike Graf and Tom Kunz for their constant help and unfaltering friendship. I would equally like to thank David Robinson for always being on the receiving side of a question with a good answer, and Andrei Sherstyuk for allowing me to borrow his graphic talent. This work was very much influenced by Dr. Bozena Thompson's extensive linguistic knowledge which I have tapped repeatedly. My greatest appreciation goes to my advisor, Professor Frederick B. Thompson, for instilling in me through his perseverance, insight and dedication to this project a flame that has altered the course of my life and that I shall keep carrying forward. Finally, I acknowledge the loving and technical support of my family and of Arlette without whom this endeavor might not have reached its culmination.
