Sharing availability information has been a long-standing goal in collaboration and workplace awareness systems. InterruptMe is yet another project aimed at providing users with an awareness of a colleague’s availability, but with an embedded series of critiques to existing systems. InterruptMe provides medium and person-tailored availability, implements an asymmetric-traceable approach, and delivers information by means of implicit interaction. InterruptMe uses a set of sensors to capture availability information and support the triggers for implicit interaction.
We have finished implementing a first version of InterruptMe (system paper submitted for review at UIST 2011) and are expecting for a NSF grant to carry out a longitudinal evaluation of the system. Calculating and sharing availability is a truly challenging problem, and we expect to move this project forward with an only-mobile implementation.
