A general principle for all user interface design is to go through all of your design elements and remove them one at a time. If the design works as well without a certain design element, kill it.

Lee, David, Munson, Sean A., Congleton, Ben, Newman, Mark W., Ackerman, Mark S., Hofer, Erik C. and Finholt, Thomas A. (2009): Montage: a platform for physically navigating multiple pages of web content. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2009 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2009. pp. 4477-4482.

Montage is a platform for rendering multiple pages of web content on large tiled displays (several desktop LCDs arranged in a spatially contiguous matrix). We discuss the advantages of data visualization using a newsstand metaphor, showing many content items at once and allowing users to quickly refine visual searches by walking (physically navigating) closer to specific data on the display. We have used Montage to build three applications that demonstrate the variety of applications that are possible on this platform. These applications have benefits for both everyday use and as research tools.

McCarthy, Joseph F., Congleton, Ben and Harper, F. Maxwell (2008): The context, content & community collage: sharing personal digital media in the physical workplace. In: Proceedings of ACM CSCW08 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work 2008. pp. 97-106.

Online social media services enable people to share many aspects of their personal interests and passions with friends, acquaintances and strangers. We are investigating how the display of social media in a workplace context can improve relationships among collocated colleagues. We have designed, developed and deployed the Context, Content and Community Collage, which runs on large LCD touchscreen computers installed in eight locations throughout a research laboratory. This proactive display application senses nearby people via Bluetooth phones, and responds by incrementally adding photos associated with those people to an ambient collage shown on the screen. This paper describes the motivations, goals, design and impact of the system, highlighting the ways the system has increased interactions and improved personal relationships among coworkers at the deployment site. We also look at how the creation of a shared physical window into online media has affected the use of that media.

Yang, Seungwon, Congleton, Ben, Luc, George, Perez-Quinones, Manuel A. and Fox, Edward A. (2006): Demonstrating the use of a SenseCam in two domains. In: JCDL06: Proceedings of the 6th ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2006. p. 376.

MyLifeBits is both an application and a framework to manage a personal lifetime of memories. We will demonstrate the use of a small digital library that manages data from two Microsoft SenseCams, used by: 1) students in the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, and 2) students supported by our Assistive Technologies office.
