Till recently I worked at Emory University in Atlanta. In the Fall of '99 I will be mostly at the Swedish Institute for Computer Science in Stockholm and Uppsala, and after mid January 2000 at IBM Almaden Research.

I learned about Smalltalk during my Computer Science studies in Vienna (Austria) I was fascinated by this language, but I never had the opportunity to actually tinker with it, 'till I heard about Squeak from Mark Guzdial. I was immediately hooked.

Well, I'm still very much a Squeak (and Smalltalk) newbie, but I'm getting there.

I'm interested in Social Navigation, and generally any form or direct or indirect collaboration for navigation in information spaces. There is a little bit of information on that on my home page at http://www.mindspring.com/~juggle5/ (Dead Link, 18-Oct-2003), but the project stuff there is pretty outdated...

One of my Squeak projects was a modified Swiki which incorporated some functionality for social navigation and had a different design to be more approachable. On this server people are aware of other people's activities because links show 'footprints' of where people were, and markers point out recently modified information. Since I left Emory this Swiki is not online any more... Send me an email if you'd like to hear more about this :)
