Personal Information Management (PIM) is an important emerg- ing area of study in Computer Science and Information Systems. During the Spring of 2006, we offered a special topics course in PIM at Virginia Tech. This paper presents some motivation of why studying PIM is important, the goals for the course, some sam- ple material from the course, and a few student evaluations. The paper presents in detail an activity called “Day in the Life of My Information” that resulted in an interesting experience from both, educational and research points of view.
