It also provides a framework for modelling how the interactions of sender’s information and recipient’s attention combine to result in the recipient having awareness of the sender. Although regarded as influential, the model was not widely adopted beyond the original scale of work on collaborative virtual environments (Sandor et al. 1997) until later. McEwan and Greenberg (2005) implemented an awareness system, Community Bar, that gives user explicit control over the nimbus and focus settings. 3 Event Pipeline Model The event pipeline model extended the concept introduced by Khronika (L¨ovstrand 1991) of decoupling senders and receivers of discrete awareness events.

In the late 1990s, research began to appear specifically about the trade-off between awareness and privacy. The techniques for achieving balance in the trade-off focussed on transforming the display of awareness information to hide sensitive details and to make it “quieter” to avoid distracting interruptions. 1 An Historical Reflection of Awareness in Collaboration 15 Hudson and Smith (1996) were the first to clearly state the trade-off between awareness and privacy. They focused on the problem specifically within media spaces.

The filters were introduced with the aim of reducing the large flow of information that event-based systems produce. In addition to these individual filters the model also introduced a global filter that allowed for organisation-wide policies to be reflected in the event distribution model, as well as the notion of conflict resolution between participating parties (Pfeifer and Wulf 1995). The aim in the 1996 publication (Fuchs et al. 1996) was to apply the model in the context of PoliTeam, a research project that was concerned with supporting the col5 The model was never consistently named.
