Workshop on Building Informative Workspaces

My second day at OOPSLA 2006 was spent in the Building Informative Workspaces workshop. There were several interresting people there, including Dave Thomas, and Alistair Cockburn dropped by also.

After introduction, there was a short presentation to set the scope of the workshop followed by one story by each of the participant on a related topic.

A lot of focus in the workshop was on distributed teams, which is a common problem, and the solutions suggested were all electronic, mostly wiki and skype variants.

We gathered a lot of examples and these will be available at http://informativeworkspaces.com/

All-in-all, this was my second workshop, and I am very satisfied with it.
