Time, both one's own and others', is one of the most
complex resources one must manage daily. As contact
between computers and users grows closer and more
constant, as in the case of wearable computers, new
opportunities arise to facilitate time management. This
paper describes OwnTime, a system which displays
information in support of the user's meeting time
management abilities and whose design emphasizes
peripheral awareness and minimal cognitive load.
KEYWORDS: Time management, peripheral awareness,
colocated interaction, headworn displays.
