Miller, David S., Smith, John G. and Muller, Michael J. (1992): TelePICTIVE: Computer-Supported Collaborative GUI Design for Designers with Diverse Expertise. In: Mackinlay, Jock D. and Green, Mark (eds.) Proceedings of the 5th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology November 15 - 18, 1992, Monteray, California, United States. pp. 151-160. http://www.acm.org/pubs/articles/proceedings/uist/142621/p151-miller/p151-miller.pdf

It is generally accepted that it is important to involve the end users of a Graphical User Interface (GUI) in all stages of its design and development. However, traditional GUI development tools typically do not support collaborative design. TelePICTIVE is an experimental software prototype designed to allow computer-naive users to collaborate with experts at possibly remote locations in designing GUIs. TelePICTIVE is based on the PICTIVE participatory design methodology and has been prototyped using the RENDEZVOUS system. In this paper we describe TelePICTIVE, and show how it is designed to support collaboration among a group of GUI designers with diverse levels of expertise. We also explore some of the issues that have come up during development and initial usability testing, such as how to coordinate simultaneous access to a shared design surface, and how to engage in the participatory design of GUIs using a Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) system.

Muller, Michael J., Smith, John G., Shoher, J. Zachary and Goldberg, Harry (1991): Privacy, Anonymity and Interpersonal Competition Issues Identified During Participatory Design of Project Management Groupware. In ACM SIGCHI Bulletin, 23 (1) pp. 82-87.

Project Management Groupware (PMG) presents complex design challenges because the resulting system can act as both (a) a community for interpersonal collaboration and (b) an arena for interpersonal competition. This paper describes an application of the participatory design paradigm to explore these issues, and to track the contingent evolution of computing systems and social systems around the PMG. We describe work in progress on the design of an experimental prototype that appears to have novel attributes in the areas of interpersonal collaboration and competition, information filtration, privacy, and elective anonymity in interpersonal communications.
