The stick-e document: a framework for creating context-aware applications
SUMMARY There is increasing interest in computer applications that are aware of the user's context. Currently these applications are normally hand-crafted. A lot of them consist of presenting information to users as they enter a given context, for example a tourist nearing a site within a city or a visitor moving round a building. The paper presents a new form of document, and the supporting software, which allows such applications to be created simply by building a new document. The motivation is to make the creation and use of these applications as easy as creating and using web pages.
