We briefly explore some notions of seamlessness and suggest, by example, why alternative approaches that explore and exploit 'seamfulness' may be required. Rather than a fully-formed model, this is an initial step towards a new conceptual framework for understanding and designing interaction in ubiquitous computing. It is based on our development of a number of systems in the Equator Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration. </ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
