    We have developed a hypermedia environment for global collaboration by knowledge workers, which consists of two modules: InterPOD and TeamSmart. InterPOD creates a “meeting room” environment for participants to access and share multimedia information from various sources, while the TeamSmart hypermedia tool supports collaboration on document production by globally dispersed teams View full abstract»

    The Internet's phenomenal growth has created the potential for a ubiquitously connected society. This potential has been slow in coming, however, in part because the majority of today's home users connect to the Internet over slow analog telephone lines. Slow modems and congestion at popular Web sites have further contributed to the “World Wide Wait”. Broadband access (connections at d... View full abstract»

    Operation propagation refers to the mechanisms and policies used in group editors for the participants to notify each other of their individual editing activities. The timing and granularity of propagation depend on different requirements, such as network bandwidth, session scale, the computational power of the involved sites and the preferences of each user. In this article, we draw on some commo... View full abstract»

    Using advances in audio and video technology, capturing meetings can be much more than recording slide presentations and videotaping speakers. The FX Palo Alto Laboratory combined notetaking software and behind-the-scenes network hardware to create an unobtrusive multimedia conference room that is capable of capturing a range of presentation styles View full abstract»

    Previous attempts at bringing gaze awareness to desktop videoconferencing have relied on hardware solutions. In this article, the authors describe their software approach, which tracks participants' head and eye movements using vision techniques, then uses this information to graphically place the head and eyes in a 3D environment View full abstract»

    Two of the most productive links between text and technology resulted in hypertexts and interactive fiction. Has this union of text and technology taken two totally different paths? Hypertexts, originally thought to be entirely new modes of expression for mass literature, have been largely relegated to highly academic textual experimentation, while narratives and stories in PC and console games ar...

    The expansion of worldwide digital networks gives consumers extensive access to (and lets them reuse) audio-visual material regardless of the context they're taken from - such as advertising, entertainment, education, or research. In this kind of environment, the question of who owns the content is extremely relevant. Generally, we accept that universal access to material is indispensable for the ... View full abstract»
