Repurposing: Techniques for reuse and integration of interactive systems
This paper explores aspects of reuse and intergration of legacy applications that have arisen in our previous research into novel interfaces for supporting communication and collaboration. Six techniques we cumulatively refer to as interaction repurposing are presented. These approaches are then used in a design extension to a standard email that preserves legacy operation of that client.
