Herstad, Jo and Holone, Harald (2012): What we talk about when we talk about co-creative tangibles. In: Proceedings of the 12th Participatory Design Conference. Volume 2 Exploratory Papers, Workshop Descriptions, Industry Cases 2012. pp. 109-112.

We investigate ways in which emergent digital technologies embedded into "soft things" offer new possibilities for communication, collaboration and co-creation between people with and without disabilities. Specifically, we look at ways in which tangible, net based, multi-modal artifacts can be used for creating and sharing music and visuals. In this paper, we describe the notion of co-creative tangibles, and the ways in which different stakeholders talk about these "smart things". The three participating groups are children and their families, care givers and teachers, and researchers from different disciplines. We will specifically investigate Universal Design in the area of Tangible Interaction, and ways of talking about the "things" we develop, use and interact with.

Holone, Harald and Herstad, Jo (2010): Negotiating privacy boundaries in social applications for accessibility mapping. In: Proceedings of the Sixth Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 2010. pp. 217-225.

Privacy is often used as an abstract concept, and negotiating what information to disclose to whom, where, at what times, and in what situations is a challenging one. In this paper we apply a previously proposed framework from Palen and Dourish for understanding and discussing privacy to a setting of sharing and acting on information about physical accessibility. We do this by describing existing practice for sharing of such information among wheelchair users, and compare that with new practices emerging from the use of ICT, the mobile, collaborative route planning concept OurWay. Through highlighting these changes, we discuss concrete privacy issues, and hope to provide a contribution to users, designers and analysts for creating and using mobile, networked technologies for accessible navigation of urban and built environments.

Herstad, Jo, Thanh, Do Van and Audestad, Jan Arild (1999): Mobile Communication and Interaction in Context. In: Maybury, Mark T. (ed.) International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces 1999 January 5-8, 1999, Redondo Beach, California, USA. p. 198.

Current mobile communication solutions leave out information about the context in which the communication takes place. Context is, however, a key factor for the success of interpersonal communication. The contextual communication system described in this paper enhances existing mobile multimedia communication systems by introducing a feedback loop to convey contextual information. This information can be used either by the communication system or the addressee to select the most appropriate communication media, or to adjust and optimize the interaction mechanisms. Our claim is that to make useful, functional and powerful new tools for supporting human-human communication and interaction at a distance, the context has to be considered in the design of communication and information solutions.
