This is the presentation stack from CHI 2013, where we presented a paper of the same name. The paper advances something we call heterogeneous multiplicity, an ecology of digital objects with behaviors that evoke a perception that they have autonomy, intention, personality and an inner life. These “AniThings” are seen as collaborators, each with a distinct personality, that play a contributing role in creative activities. Unlike systems that try to provide “best” recommendations, the AniThings provide a rich information space from which to consider, select and pursue.
