DroPicks - A Tool for Collaborative Content Sharing Exploiting Everyday Artefacts
Emergence of social web services like YouTube[1], Flickr[2] etc. is constantly transforming the way we share our lifestyles with family, friends and colleagues. The significance of specific contents can be enhanced if shared with the right person, at right location and time. This paper explores this contextual social content sharing mechanism and presents DroPicks that utilizes augmented everyday artefacts as containers for digital information. Many everyday artefacts are immobile, which implicitly restricts contents stored to a location. Such indirect, contextual sharing has advantages over direct communication mechanisms (E-mail, SMS, IM...) as it provides the content in correct context, seeking minimal attention. Considering the lightness of social contents, we argue that our approach is appropriate, as it does not seek immediate attention, but rather offers the content in the background.
