AIC Seminar Series

Towards an Interoperability Framework for Collaborative Tools

Eugene Eric KimBlue Oxen Associates

Date:  2004-04-29 at 16:00

Location:  EJ228  (Directions)

   Abstract

Almost 40 years ago, Doug Engelbart demonstrated the first collaborative software tools at a conference in San Francisco. The demonstration stunned the audience, who gave Engelbart a standing ovation. In many ways, today's collaborative tools aren't significantly better than the software demonstrated that day. One of the biggest problems is that these tools do not interoperate well with each other. Kim will discuss the need for a shared conceptual framework for collaborative tools, which will help reveal new possibilities for interoperability and improvement.
