Fujima, Jun, Lunzer, Aran, Hornbaek, Kasper and Tanaka, Yuzuru (2004): Clip, connect, clone: combining application elements to build custom interfaces for information access. In: Proceedings of the 2004 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2004. pp. 175-184. Available online

Many applications provide a form-like interface for requesting information: the user fills in some fields, submits the form, and the application presents corresponding results. Such a procedure becomes burdensome if (1) the user must submit many different requests, for example in pursuing a trial-and-error search, (2) results from one application are to be used as inputs for another, requiring the user to transfer them by hand, or (3) the user wants to compare results, but only the results from one request can be seen at a time. We describe how users can reduce this burden by creating custom interfaces using three mechanisms: clipping of input and result elements from existing applications to form cells on a spreadsheet; connecting these cells using formulas, thus enabling result transfer between applications; and cloning cells so that multiple requests can be handled side by side. We demonstrate a prototype of these mechanisms, initially specialised for handling Web applications, and show how it lets users build new interfaces to suit their individual needs.

Fujima, Jun, Lunzer, Aran, Hornbaek, Kasper and Tanaka, Yuzuru (2004): C3W: clipping, connecting and cloning for the web. In: Proceedings of the 2004 International Conference on the World Wide Web 2004. pp. 444-445. Available online

Many of today's Web applications support just simple trial-and error retrievals: supply one set of parameters, obtain one set of results. For a user who wants to examine a number of alternative retrievals, this form of interaction is inconvenient and frustrating. It can be hard work to keep finding and adjusting the parameter specification widgets buried in a Web page, and to remember or record each result set. Moreover, when using diverse Web applications in combination -- transferring result data from one into the parameters for another -- the lack of an easy way to automate that transfer merely increases the frustration. Our solution is to integrate techniques for each of three key activities: clipping elements from Web pages to wrap an application; connecting wrapped applications using spreadsheet-like formulas; and cloning the interface elements so that several sets of parameters and results may be handled in parallel. We describe a prototype that implements this solution, showing how it enables rapid and flexible exploration of the resources accessible through user-chosen combinations of Web applications. Our aim in this work is to contribute to research on making optimal use of the wealth of information on the Web, by providing interaction techniques that address very practical needs.
