Record type: Other


In this paper we present two versions of a system we deployed to consider how to support a light-weight interaction to ‘tag’ a temporally and physically located event for later, digital access. In each deployment, we chose similar kinds of events, used similar interactions to tag the artifacts/information at the events, and provided similar digital representations of the artifacts/information tagged. We explore how the differences in the context of each event affected the perceived usability of the system. We present a comparison of these differences towards the development of a design heuristics for pervasive systems interested in supporting persistent access to otherwise transient information that a user has actively selected as of interest.
