2. Subjectivity

An objective system offers one way or a fixed set of ways of thinking about the world. The problem is that people, in order to use the system are forced to learn a new way of thinking about the world - a way which may not be suited to their own personal objectives. So - enable users to construct/have constructed for their shared ways of seeing that reflect the way they think about the world; then enable users to do their work through that way of seeing. Done right a subjective system is transparent for individual users; and malleable across users.

Example(s): View construction tools like those provided by lotus notes. Filters, Grouping, Sorting, Local computation
