We produced a prototype informal videoconferencing and awareness appliance and deployed it under two distinct scenarios to investigate the usability and behavioral effects of the convergence of videoconferencing, context - awareness, and ambient displays. Findings indicate designers of such systems should pay close attention to privacy concerns, audio technologies, videoconferencing software configurability and resolution, and the social dynamics of workspaces.
