Digitizing sticky notes

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

This chapter discusses the difficulties in transferring well-known sticky notes properties into digital counterpart or augmenting physical notes digitally in hybrid notes. The chapter covers technical issues with digitally mediated sticky notes used for collaboration. In doing so, it draws from previous work a summary of physical and no-frills digital sticky notes as they were used and analyzed in collaborative situations between two designers. It presents also the no-frills technological solution, DigNote in order to further discuss the space between the physical and the digital as the starting point for exploring hybrid sticky notes. The chapter uses a use scenario and study setup to address creative collaboration between pairs of designers, hence motivating the presented work on hybrid sticky notes. We present this further step, toward HyNote, a hybrid system. HyNote constitutes the main addition to our past work, and it is in particular the step from the digital to the hybrid that we present and discuss in this chapter.
