Our intent is to provide an ambient reminder to an office-dweller that they have somewhere else to be in the next 15 minutes, perhaps a happy hour date.  We created an artistic light near the office door that intensifies as an appointment approaches, eventually creating red sharp arrows surrounding the office door. There are various power dynamics in place in an office that make wrapping up a meeting or sneaking out early difficult.  Our target user would not want a boss to know that mental energy is being spent unproductively.  The user could also feel awkward if co-workers knew that the light was a signal for this particular event, or that the light was a reminder for the user to ask others to bring their visit to a close.  At the same time, the user does not want to forget about an event, and does not want any record on a computer that could be monitored by the company's IT staff.
