Abstract

As organisations grow and the physical distance between individuals increases, the simple informal communication that is essential for creativity declines. This paper presents a prototype system that was designed to increase informal communication by restoring awareness between physically distant employees. The key representation of individuals within this prototype was through frequently updated video snapshots. Users of the system reported feeling 'closer' to each other. We also suggest further experiments to assess the effects of video snapshots on trust.
