Social Computer Mediated Communication

Project 2 - Text-based communication


You have the option of selecting from the following paths:

    1.  Design a new interface for text based interaction
         This may be synchronous (talk, chat, IM) or asynchronous (email, usenet)

            ex.  a new interface for email, usenet, IM, chat, bulletin boards

    2.  Design a new form of text based interaction


With these projects, emphasize how to respresent social cues (yelling, anger, frustration, posture, agreement, disagreement, etc.) within the interface.  Think about what is missing in current implementations and how one might augment them.
