A large amount of design information that is generated during design often does not get recorded, resulting in a potential loss of important design knowledge. The design rationale community has offered methods for capturing and documenting this important design knowledge, but these methods have not succeeded in practice. We propose using ubiquitous computing technology to automatically capture design information as it is generated naturally in design meetings. In this paper, we report the results of a preliminary case study examining how automated capture can be used to produce multimedia records of design discussions. Keywords:
