Abstract : The emergence of utility computing such as Cloud Computing makes the current desktop metaphor outdated. There is a need to open the desktop so that to, in addition to classical data, also consider actors and tasks as well as their relationships. This paper proposes the concept of "Pearl" for both denoting and representing socially augmented data. It describes a health care prototype, and reports a qualitative evaluation that confirms the innovation and relevance of the concept.
