Abstract:
While systems supporting communities of practice have been shown to be desirable many, if not all, require
additional user effort because they are decoupled from daily work practices and tools. We present a range of
personal document management services that additionally support community awareness and knowledge
sharing in the office environment. We show how this system decreases usage barriers as well as increasing
perceived benefits in a non-disruptive and effortless way. While the usage study we have conducted put some
doubt on some of our initial hypothesis, we have found clear indication of the success of this approach.
