GUI— Phooey! : The Case for Text Input

Van Kleek, Max, Bernstein, Michael, Karger, David and schraefel, m.c. (2007) GUI— Phooey! : The Case for Text Input. In, UIST 2007, Rhode Island,


Information cannot be found if it is not entered. Research shows that existing rich graphical application approaches interfere with user input in many ways, forcing complex interactions to enter simple information, requiring complex cognition to decide where the data should be stored, and limiting the kind of information that can be entered to what can fit into specific applications' data models. Freeform text entry suffers from none of these limitations but pro-duces data that is hard to retrieve or visualize. We describe the design and implementation of a system that aims to bridge these two modalities, supporting lightweight text entry, and weightless context capture, that produces enough structure to support rich interactive presentation and re-trieval of the arbitrary information entered.
