Hacking the SubEthaEdit Collaboration Experience

Last June, Robb Beal invited me to join him via IM in brainstorming a better SubEthaEdit document collaboration experience. For this improvisatory review we both used SEE v2.0.1, which was then the latest release (the collaboration interface has not changed appreciably in subsequent releases).

Robb Beal and Daniel J. Wilson review SubEthaEdit’s document collaboration

A summary of our recommendations:

  1. The collaboration interface should be designed around people, not permissions.
  2. Labels should clearly indicate functionality and/or status.
  3. The distinction between Internet and Bonjour-based sharing need not be strictly enforced.
