I haven’t been doing illustrations at work-work in a long while. Last year ended with mostly just editing the computer security textbook and then some random user interface prototyping that I can’t really show.
Last month I was assigned on an open source project called PeerLibrary, an online, collaborative reader for research papers (and PDFs/publications in general). The post below describes the code & design that I’ve turned in recently.
This week, PeerLibrary has been working on the website’s library organization and designing and implementing user interfaces. With these organization tools, users will be able to bookmark papers on the site and organize them into collections. This way, to name a couple of examples, you can save a list of references on a topic you’re researching and share required reading material with a class.
We have also been developing user interfaces, for example the system for changing access permissions on publications, highlights and annotations.
