Community Bar: Designing for Awareness and Interaction (02 Feb 2005)
The Community Bar is a groupware tool supporting
informal awareness and casual interaction for small
communities of intimate collaborators. Its conceptual
design is primarily based on a comprehensive sociological
theory called the Locales Framework, with extra details
supplied by other theoretical model of awareness. It is also
influenced by the Microsoft SideShow system: it displays
basic awareness information in a space-conservative
sidebar, and reveals progressively more information
through a series of transient large tooltips and pop-up
windows.
