1) “How would I use it?  Carrie Cai, one of the researchers at MIT who worked on WaitSuite, walked me through an example.”  This is called a “use case”.  Use cases are very important in helping programmers, developers and users understand how a system should work.  Can you come up with some use cases for apps on your phone?

2) “Could this type of “wait-learning” be distracting or an interruption?”  What is your take, and why?
