Abstract or Description

In this paper, we describe three experiments in designing for minimal, expressive communication. These are very simple networked devices that are aimed at supporting implicit, personal, and expressive communication, as opposed to the explicit, goal-oriented, and informative communication characterising most CSCW systems. We suggest that these prototypes open an interesting space for collaborative systems, and describe some of the issues and opportunities they raise.
