There is an old English folk saying that goes, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen." I have a different approach: Do something about the heat. The folk saying would have us accept the poor designs of the world. Why? After all, if people were responsible for the "heat" in the first place, then people should be able to do something about it. Is the kitchen too hot? Redesign it.

Smith, Daniel A., Lambert, Joe, Schraefel, MC and Bretherton, David (2010): QWIC: performance heuristics for large scale exploratory user interfaces. In: Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2010. pp. 451-452.

Faceted browsers offer an effective way to explore relationships and build new knowledge across data sets. So far, web-based faceted browsers have been hampered by limited feature performance and scale. QWIC, Quick Web Interface Control, describes a set of design heuristics to address performance speed both at the interface and the backend to operate on large-scale sources.

André, Paul, Wilson, Max L., Russell, Alistair, Smith, Daniel A., Owens, Alisdair and Schraefel, M. C. (2007): Continuum: designing timelines for hierarchies, relationships and scale. In: Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology October 7-10, 2007, Newport, Rhode Island, USA. pp. 101-110.

Temporal events, while often discrete, also have interesting relationships within and across times: larger events are often collections of smaller more discrete events (battles within wars; artists' works within a form); events at one point also have correlations with events at other points (a play written in one period is related to its performance over a period of time). Most temporal visualisations, however, only represent discrete data points or single data types along a single timeline: this event started here and ended there; this work was published at this time; this tag was popular for this period. In order to represent richer, faceted attributes of temporal events, we present Continuum. Continuum enables hierarchical relationships in temporal data to be represented and explored; it enables relationships between events across periods to be expressed, and in particular it enables user-determined control over the level of detail of any facet of interest so that the person using the system can determine a focus point, no matter the level of zoom over the temporal space. We present the factors motivating our approach, our evaluation and implementation of this new visualisation which makes it easy for anyone to apply this interface to rich, large-scale datasets with temporal data.

Schraefel, M. C., Smith, Daniel A., Owens, Alisdair, Russell, Alistair, Harris, Craig and Wilson, Max (2005): The evolving mSpace platform: leveraging the semantic web on the trail of the memex. In: Proceedings of the Sixteenth ACM Conference on Hypertext 2005. pp. 174-183.

Vannevar Bush proposed the memex as a means to support building knowledge in the way he says the human brain works: by association. Achieving this vision has been a core motivation for hypertext research. In this paper, we suggest first that Bush's memex reflects an interaction paradigm rather than system design. Second, we propose that Semantic Web promises to provide the mechanisms to enable these interaction requirements. Third, we propose the mSpace framework and architecture as a platform to deploy lightweight Semantic Web applications which foreground associative interaction. We propose this lightweight approach as a means to evaluate both interaction needs and the cost/benefits of using Semantic Web technologies to support them.
