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.

Bragdon, Andrew, Zeleznik, Robert, Reiss, Steven P., Karumuri, Suman, Cheung, William, Kaplan, Joshua, Coleman, Christopher, Adeputra, Ferdi and LaViola, Joseph J. (2010): Code bubbles: a working set-based interface for code understanding and maintenance. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2010 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2010. pp. 2503-2512.

Developers spend significant time reading and navigating code fragments spread across multiple locations. The file-based nature of contemporary IDEs makes it prohibitively difficult to create and maintain a simultaneous view of such fragments. We propose a novel user interface metaphor for code understanding based on collections of lightweight, editable fragments called bubbles, which form concurrently visible working sets. We present the results of a qualitative usability evaluation, and the results of a quantitative study which indicates Code Bubbles significantly improved code understanding time, while reducing navigation interactions over a widely-used IDE, for two controlled tasks.

Zeleznik, Robert, Bragdon, Andrew, Adeputra, Ferdi and Ko, Hsu-Sheng (2010): Hands-on math: a page-based multi-touch and pen desktop for technical work and problem solving. In: Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2010. pp. 17-26.

Students, scientists and engineers have to choose between the flexible, free-form input of pencil and paper and the computational power of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) when solving mathematical problems. Hands-On Math is a multi-touch and pen-based system which attempts to unify these approaches by providing virtual paper that is enhanced to recognize mathematical notations as a means of providing in situ access to CAS functionality. Pages can be created and organized on a large pannable desktop, and mathematical expressions can be computed, graphed and manipulated using a set of uni- and bi-manual interactions which facilitate rapid exploration by eliminating tedious and error prone transcription tasks. Analysis of a qualitative pilot evaluation indicates the potential of our approach and highlights usability issues with the novel techniques used.
