Discussion

Should the conference manager be part of the Operating System?

In that case, should it be implemented in the form of links (hypertext operating system)?

The floor control should be user defined with the assistance of templates for typical forms of collaboration. The dichotomy of mechanism/policy partially addresses this issue, but still more flexibility may be provided.

Can this framework support Greenberg's GroupSketch and GroupDraw?
