This paper discusses how ID-based information access, i.e., information access that utilizes IDs of physical entities, can be enhanced to function in a dynamic and social environment, where users can participate in the process of designing and extending the information space. QueryLens is a system that accumulates queries, connects them to a relevant physical object, allows a user to share and modify them, and uses them to capture answers.
