In the WebStickers system, where barcode stickers may be attached to physical objects making them act as bookmarks to the worldwide web in a convenient way to the user. Using readily available technology, i.e., standard barcode readers and adhesive stickers, WebStickers enable users to take advantage of their physical environment when organizing and sharing bookmarks. Starting from a usercentered rather than technology-driven point of view, we discuss how the affordances of physical tokens, as well as the context they are placed in, can act as useful cues for users. Since many objects already have barcodes printed on them, they can be used with the WebStickers system without physical modification. In addition, WebStickers meets proposed design criteria for information workspaces.
