Franklin Institute looking for HCI Nominations

I almost never forward stuff like this to the list, but I felt that for the
Franklin Institute to be taking the time out to focus on HCI this year, is
definitely worth our attention as an event in and of itself and then by
helping it by participating in that process if you want/can.

For those not familiar.

Carousel reference implementations?

Does anyone have pointers to reference implementations for carousels
which deal with acceleration physics?

On a more general note, are there reference implementations available
for "standard" gestures (pinch, stretch, twist, etc)? I would hate
to have to reinvent the, um, carousel...

"Product Experience" (book)

A new book is coming on entitled "Product Experience".

It seems to be a classic user experience book but with a twist. Instead of
Human-Computer Interaction it talks about Product-Human Interaction.
I never heard the phrase before, but it really speaks to me in terms of
re-thinking our research.

Bring your OLPC XO laptops to Interaction08!

I just got my new OLPC XO laptop as part of their Buy 1 Get 1
program. I wanted to let my friends and colleagues know about this
great effort techno-charitable initiative (though I'm sure many, if
not most of you are already familiar with it).

Perhaps like me you've been following news stories about the One
Laptop Per Child initiative that was started by M.I.T. Media Lab's
founder, Nicholas Negroponte. The laptop they've produced was
designed by fuseproject in collaboration with Design Continuum.
Pentagram also did some of the design.

Identifying users without accounts


I am currently working on a proof of concept and I would like to be able
to identify users without the need for the user to generate account and
such. The proof of concept consists of a console installation where the
user inputs POIs and then the user can refer a personalized leaflet/guide
based on his earlier entered data on his mobile device. Now I would like to
identify the user in some manner when he uses his mobile device (currently
iPhone atm).

Are there any best practices if you want to do such things? I am currently
