Diving into the Data Ocean
In this paper we present the concept for a novel user interface that simplifies the management of data and the search of information strongly: Instead of a reactive system, a proactive system is suggested. As a substitute of the desktop metaphor we propose to model data as active creatures that move inside the ecosystem computer: a Data Ocean. The concept can be used for different applications to manage objects with varying properties.
