From Jacobs' first journey to Spain, to the advanced politics of Golden Age Madrid, to his assembly with the fellow who kept Las Meninas through the Spanish Civil struggle, through Jacobs' reports of the sunless global of the paintings historical past academy, Jacobs' dissolves the limitations among the previous and the current, the genuine and the illusory.

Conclusion This paper has highlighted the need to provide appropriate support for CSCW applications and has indicated that existing support is inadequate because of a number of problems. A platform to address these problems, COLA, has been described which acts as a bridge between distributed systems (which provide many mechanisms for sharing but without any knowledge of why people work together) and cooperative environments (which contain a great deal of semantic information, and often prescribe how people ought to work together).

Another important attribute is the envisioned deadline of a task. The system reminds the user of approaching deadlines, but does not enforce any actions with respect to overdue tasks. Besides those most important attributes there are a number of other attributes that allow the user to specify in more detail how a task should be performed: timerelated data, such as start date, data that describes causal dependencies between tasks and between tasks and documents, and personal data attached to a task, such as notes etc.

A traditional activity model would attempt to capture the dependencies between sub tasks, the deadlines associated with different tasks and the behaviour exhibited by different roles. In contrast, the lightweight model within the COLA platform focuses on the external effects of this activity by defining only the stages the activity must move through and the objects and people associated with it. ~~ .. £E~~~ .. _.... ~.... ~ .....
