The authors discuss what they learnt in terms of the content of performances, the pacing and the means given to participants to navigate within the space. An important issue addressed is how such performances can be made accessible to non-interactive audiences who can only see a TV-like rendering of the event. In Chapter 11, Prinz et al. consider how to present awareness of the activities of others for better support of collaborative work. This chapter describes the TOWER (Theatre of Work Enabling Relationships) system, which provides a number of mechanisms to communicate awareness information to members of a work group both via 3D displays and also via Smartmaps integrated with the Basic Support for Co-operative Work (BSCW) document management system.

This method would have the advantage of creating a stronger connection to the original design of the web page as a whole. 2 The Web as a Road Network WWW3D and the Web Planetarium can generate very tangled and convoluted visualisations of nodes. Although users can manually reposition nodes this is not a solution that can be applied to large spaces. 9. A disadvantage of this approach is that in certain cases the FDP algorithm may take longer to converge. 3 Hybrid Browsing The original aim of WWW3D was to provide an acceptable and novel web-browsing experience using an entirely 3D interface.

In addition damping is applied to try and prevent large changes to the visualisation for a given iteration of t he FDP algorithm – this helps to prevent the user from becoming disorientated. The result of this is that the inter-document layout gradually evolves over time to produce clusters of inter-linked documents. Instead of running the FDP algorithm until it converges (which could take a long time) only a specified number of iterations are executed. The rational for this is that the space will change anyway as users browse new web pages so it is not necessary to force users to wait until the layout stabilises before allowing them to continue browsing.
