Undo for anyone, anywhere, anytime

Abstract : Computer systems are complex and unforgiving. Users need environments more tolerant of errors, allowing them to correct mistakes and explore alternatives. This is the aim of Joyce. Joyce records application usage across the system in such a way that the semantic relationships between individual operations are preserved. Using this information Joyce enables an exploratory model of undo/redo; the user can navigate, visualize, edit and experiment with the history of the system safe in the knowledge that any history change will not have unforeseen and irreversible effects.
