Compadres supports members of a work group through passive monitoring of workgroup presence, passive overview of co-worker activity, and access to a range of synchronous and asynchronous communications options through a single interface. The system provides support for a shared virtual workspace with individually customizable personal work areas, or desktops. These features provide a passive presence monitor as well as a unified interface to a variety of communications tools. Individuals, called compadres, join a workgroup, or cadre, of co-workers.
