the best work in this context that I've seen so far is Sven Bergman's
master thesis: "Sugar - Not necessarily unhealthy":
By the way, what is the focus of your thesis? I've recently restarted a
dormant thesis project myself and would of course love to avoid too
much overlap (esp. since Sven's thesis is basically *exactly* what I
had planned to do;-).
Zitat von Sascha Silbe <sascha-ml-ui-sugar-iaep at silbe.org>:
> Sorry for the slightly OT post, but I'm having a hard time finding
> relevant papers for my diploma thesis.
> I'm looking for papers
> a) describing the Sugar Learning Platform (high-level overview, ideas
> behind it) and
> b) that describe ideas used when designing Sugar (e.g. other
> experimental UIs), i.e. that formed the basis of the Sugar HIGs.
> c) anything else that had an influence on the UI design of Sugar.
> What I've found:
> - Carlos' thesis is the best match so far, but it focusses on what
> Sugar looks like, not the ideas behind it
> - some early articles about OLPC but they're more about laptops in
> education than about Sugar
> I'd appreciate any pointer in the right direction.
