Context Awareness Widget Supports Text Composition
James E. Powell, Linn Marks Collins and Mark L.B. Martinez (all Los Alamos National Laboratory) describe their Context Awareness Tool (CAT) which supports text composition by providing awareness of relevant content and references proactively and non-intrusively in The Fierce Urgency of Now: A Proactive, Pervasive Content Awareness Tool, D-Lib Magazine, May/June 2009. As a user composes text, CAT automatically searches multiple sources, retrieves results, and displays links to the results. A working prototype of the tool has been implemented using Web 2.0 and Digital Library 2.0 technologies, and is flexible and highly configurable for both Web search engines and deep web targets. This enables near instant querying and aggregation of results from a nearly infinite combination of resources, tailored to tasks, situations, users, and communities. Very interesting. [JH]

This looks to be a really cool tool. Any idea if Los Alamos plans to release the code?
