In the context of the project Magic Lounge* we are developing a number of new communication services which are to overcome such communication barriers and which aim at hiding complexity as much as possible from the communication participants. The project name "Magic Lounge" also stands for a virtual meeting place in which the members of a geographically dispersed community can come together, chat with each other and carry out joint, goal-directed activities. For example, to plan a travel they may jointly explore information sources on the WWW, such as time tables of flights and public transportation services.
