Paper Augmented Digital Documents (PADD), are digital
documents that can be manipulated either on a computer
screen or on paper. PADD, and the infrastructure
supporting them, can be seen as a bridge between the
digital and the paper worlds. As digital documents, PADD
are easy to edit, distribute and archive; as paper documents,
PADD are easy to navigate, annotate and well accepted in
social settings. The chimeric nature of PADD makes them
well suited for many tasks such as proofreading, editing,
and annotation of large format document like blueprints.
We are presenting an architecture which supports the
seamless manipulation of PADs using today's technologies
and reports on the lessons we learned while implementing
the first PADD system.
