When using the OLPC, a number of events can occur which change state in a way that the user is interested in. (Especially in the case of wireless access.) Having a running message log which is accessible to the user for messages like "Connecting to Wireless network Atlas 'failed'" would be useful.

The equivalent in the OS X world would be 'growl', which shows short-term message displays.

These displays would not be necessarily be re-displayed ever -- just let the user know what is going on as it is going on.

(SJ encouraged me to open this)

Eben, how do you see this done in the UI?

It seem like Journal, notifications (whenever we figure out a design for them) and advanced informations in rollovers already covers the possible use cases.

  • Summary changed from Running 'message log' -- alerts from various services to Need design for sugar notification system

Right, this is in my mind the notification system we've been toying with all along. We still don't have a final design for that yet, but it would cover exactly the types of things that this ticket mentions.

This requires an entirely new service and API.
