Presto: an experimental architecture for fluid interactive document spaces

Paul Dourish, W. Keith Edwards, Anthony LaMarca, Michael Salisbury
1999 ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction  
Traditional document systems use hierarchical filing structures as the basis for organising, storing and retrieving documents.  ...  However, this structure is very limited in comparison with the rich and varied forms of document interaction and category management in everyday document use.  ...  We would particularly like to thank the other members of Placeless Documents group -John Lamping, Karin Petersen, Doug Terry and Jim Thornton -for their significant contributions to the work described  ...

Extending document management systems with user-specific active properties

Paul Dourish, W. Keith Edwards, Anthony LaMarca, John Lamping, Karin Petersen, Michael Salisbury, Douglas B. Terry, James Thornton
2000 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
The combination of document properties as a uniform mechanism for document management, and active properties as a way of delivering document services, represents a new paradigm for document management  ...  Document properties can reflect not only categorizations of documents and document use, but also expressions of desired system activity, such as sharing criteria, replication management and versioning.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank a number of colleagues and collaborators for contributions to the research described here, including Danny Bobrow, Dan Greene, Mike Spreitzer, Mark Stefik, Dan Swinehart  ...

Data unification in personal information management

David R. Karger, William Jones
2006 Communications of the ACM  
While the computer has fragmented information, it can also be used to put the pieces together again. This chapter surveys some of the ways in which our personal information might be better unified.  ...  He must keep Brooke's address in his address book, his picture in a photo album, his home page in his web bookmarks, a birthday invitation he is editing with her in his file system, and an appointment  ...  Similarly, all documents can be managed using the same uniform attribute operations." Presto gives substantial attention to the management of collections.  ...

PRESTO: Feedback-Driven Data Management in Sensor Networks

Ming Li, D. Ganesan, P. Shenoy
2009 IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking  
PRESTO proxies construct time-series models of observed trends in the sensor data and transmit the parameters of the model to sensors.  ...  In addition to supporting queries on current data, PRESTO also supports queries on historical data using interpolation and local archival at sensors.  ...  We wish to thank Ning Xu at University of Southern California for providing the James Reserve Data.  ...

An architecture for pen-based interaction on electronic whiteboards

Takeo Igarashi, W. Keith Edwards, Anthony LaMarca, Elizabeth D. Mynatt
2000 Proceedings of the working conference on Advanced visual interfaces - AVI '00  
While the current implementation is optimized for large office whiteboards, this architecture is useful for the implementation of a range of various pen-based systems.  ...  This paper describes the software architecture for our pen-based electronic whiteboard system, called Flatland.  ...  Flatland is built atop the Presto document management system [3] . Presto provides a loosely-structured "information soup" into which arbitrary content can be stored.  ...
