We introduce a browser evaluation test (BET), and describe a trial run application of the test. BET is a method for assessing meeting browser performance using the number of observations of interest found in the minimum amount of time as the evaluation metric, where observations of interest are statements about a meeting collected by independent observers. The resulting speed and accuracy scores aim to be objective, comparable and repeatable.

Current solutions for providing access to electronic documents while away from the office do not meet the special needs of mobile document workers. We describe "Satchel," a system that is designed specifically to support the distinctive features of mobile document work. Satchel is designed to meet the following five high-level design goals (1) easy access to document services; (2) timely document access; (3) streamlined user interface; (4) ubiquity; and (5) compliance with security policies. Our current prototype uses a Nokia 9000 Communicator as the mobile device; it communicates to the rest of the Satchel system using wireless communications, both infrared and radio. A fundamental Satchel concept is the use of tokens, or small secure references, to represent documents on the mobile device. The mobile client only transmits small tokens over the wireless channels, leaving the wired network to transmit the contents of documents when, and only when, they are required. Another fundamental Satchel concept is the highly specialized and context-sensitive user interface on the mobile device. The user's interactions are streamlined because of this specialization and though the use of contextual information gained by using infrared communications. We report the results of a trial of Satchel that was carried out within our own company, and discuss how well Satchel met our design goals. We call Satchel a "document appliance" because it provides a streamlined solution to the problem of remote document access -- it aims to support only a limited set of activities, but supports them very well.

Eldridge, Margery, Lamming, Michael and Flynn, Mike (1992): Does a Video Diary Help Recall?. In: Monk, Andrew, Diaper, Dan and Harrison, Michael D. (eds.) Proceedings of the Seventh Conference of the British Computer Society Human Computer Interaction Specialist Group - People and Computers VII August 15-18, 1992, University of York, UK. pp. 257-269.
The purpose of this paper is to determine the value of video recording in aiding the recall of work activities. A Video Diary System is described and the results of a preliminary evaluation of the system are presented. The memory experiment provided subjects with several different memory aids. The use of a Video Diary increased the number of activities which were recalled compared to using only a written diary. People and objects were particularly valuable cues in aiding the recall of work activities. Although the Video Diary was very useful, it clearly does not completely capture the events of the working day.
