Abstract: In our previous work, we introduced a web application named “Kcanvas” and how users received it. Kcanvas provides a huge canvas as a playful interface so that users can intuitively manage fragments of information that they are interested in in their everyday life in a casual manner. Subsequently we had face-to-face user observation sessions to get to know users better. The participants not only enjoyed composing their own can- vases but also willingly told their stories of personal interest hopping on fragments of information on their canvases, while they hesitated to make their canvases public. Throughout the user observation sessions, we are convinced ourselves stronger that storytelling will be a key to organize one’s daily fragments of information and there is a need to take care layers in one’s personal information space: a private layer for one’s fragments of bare interest and a public layer for sharing stories. In this paper, based on the findings from the user observation sess ions, we explain a mental model towards personal information, redefine the structure of personal information space based on the mental model, and introduce Kcanvas’ newly added and enhanced functions for storytelling.
