Shareable interfaces, those that can be interacted simultaneously by several users, are a common tool used both in CSCW research and in real world applications. They tend however to lack a capability that has been traditionally relevant to the usefulness of computing systems: multi-tasking. In this paper we explain why a combination of the multi-user features of shareable interfaces and the multi-tasking capabilities of general-purpose computing, could be relevant for building useful systems… CONTINUE READING
