Developing interactive systems that support collaboration between people, distribution across
heterogeneous devices and user appropriation is notoriously difficult. Today’s software rests on a
foundation built for personal computing, and to properly support the aforementioned qualities we
need to revisit this foundation. In this talk, I will present you with a vision called Shareable
Dynamic Media, inspired by Alan Kay’s seminal vision of Personal Dynamic Media. I will present a
prototype implementation of the vision called Webstrates, and demonstrate how it enables the
development of software where distribution across devices, collaboration between people, and
malleability and reprogrammability are the norm rather than the exception. I will show our latest
project, Codestrates, that combines Webstrates with the literate computing approach of interactive
Clemens Nylandsted Klokmose is an associate professor in the development of advanced interactive
systems at the Department of Digital Design and Information Studies, at the School of Communication
and Culture, Aarhus University. He co-directs the Digital Creativity Lab that is part of the Center
for Advanced Visualisation and Interaction (CAVI). Clemens has worked as a postdoc at Computer
Science, Aarhus University and at Laboratoire de Recherche en Informatique, Université Paris-Sud.
He has furthermore spent a year as a user interface specialist in the industry. Clemens received
his PhD in Computer Science in 2009 from Aarhus University supervised by prof. Susanne Bødker.
Clemens’ main interest is the fundamentals of interactive computing, particularly to support and
understanding computing with multiple devices and multiple people. Many of his ideas are
crystallised into the Webstrates platform (webstrates.net), which he leads the development of.
