Want to keep in better touch with your parents, but just don’t have the time? The SPARCS (Sharing Photos and Relevant Calendar Stuff) prototype shares a photo-of-the-day from your digital photos and items from your Windows Live or Outlook calendar each day using Windows Live Spaces. We are using SPARCS to study the effect of sharing suggestions and frequently sharing small amounts of information on the relationship between extended family members.
