Designing the user experience of future peripatetic users: new HCI design challenges in Space

Introduction
Travelling to the depths of Space is no longer a privilege of astronauts and scientists. Space Agencies are starting to allow those who have the means to afford it, provided that they fulfil a minimum set of physiological requirements to join the ventures into outer space. At the same time, companies are developing spacecrafts for civilian use and plan huge space stations capable of accommodating thousand of settlers.

Silicon Valley First Friday is now Second Friday

Hi folks,

Once again the first Friday of the month lands on a holiday weekend. So I
think it's better to permanently move our user experience designer happy
hour to the second Friday of the month. Less alliterative, but more
functional.

Stay tuned for details about a get-together on the 9th. In the meantime, I'm
looking for suggestions about other places we can get together in the
Sunnyvale/Mountain View, as well as San Jose area, so we can rotate
locations. If you've got a spot that you think would be good, let me know.

George

Random text generation for keyboard usability study

I'm conducting a usability study on a variety of keyboards. I need
scientifically-sound random (yet grammatical) text for the users to
type. Does anyone here know of an online resource for text like this?
Is there a standard?
