External Interfacing.

"A real how do you do."

New lighting technology for entire buildings:


Would someone on this list, a few maybe, like to propose, quickly, how
we design the interaction for this type of public display?

We should comment on this before an architect or project manager says
he knows how to make more mess out of the city, and develops interface
logic which is irreversible. What would you do?

Humbly, I'd suggest LED walls should offer directions.

CFP: CHI 2006 Work-in-Progress

(Apologies for cross-posting)

This year marks the introduction of the Work-in-Progress venue.
Work-in-Progress submissions provide an opportunity for both
practitioners and researchers to present a concise report of new
findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant
to the HCI community.

Like interactive posters of the past, Work-in-Progress focuses more on
visual presentation and discussion between the author and attendees
around the poster.

Windows UI Compliance ; "intuitive"

The Windows UI guidelines are self-contradictory at points (e.g.
recommending noun-verb interaction but going the other way at times),
and lead to the kind of interfaces we all hate. To be an HCI expert and
to adhere to the Windows guidelines is, in my opinion, unethical.

Also, there is no such thing as "intuition" and interfaces are not
"intuitive". What they can be are familiar from previous experience.

For the whole argument see:
