What is State Oriented Sharing?

State Oriented Sharing is the term that we use to describe the action of sharing content in relation with a defined state of some context, some object or some thing. The objects and things that are used as the sharing context can be virtual, physical or physiological.

Here are few examples for objects and things that can be used as the sharing context and the related patterns for determining their state: 

  1. Web page : state may be set by page URL
  2. Web domain: state is set by the domain part of the URL
  3. Product in the supermarket or a shop: state may be set by bar-code
  4. Article in a printed newspaper  paper: state may be set by newspaper name and the title of the articles
  5. Train's notifications system: state may be set by code that identify the specific train line or by identifier on the ticket
  6. Some view e.g Eifel tower: state may be set by indexed image or maybe by object name eifel.
  7. Song in the radio: state may be set by the song title
  8. Noise of bus: state may be set by spectral analysis of the sound 
  9. Heartbeat rate: state may be set by physical measurement of the heartbeat. 
  10. Location: state may be set by GPS location details

State Oriented Sharing is therefore sharing of content (basic, or complex) in relation with the state of some context - a state of sharing contexts .  

Content Glass API can be used to create tools and applications that share content in the form of widgets, as related with sharing context states and in the scope of defined peers-group (or public scope). 

Content Glass API is multidimensional contextual sharing technology. It means that object states can defined by combination of multiple dimensions, and it also means that various states represented by layers of data that may overlap or not.
