The HCI Remixed Project -- Call for Participation

We are inviting you to contribute to a unique project for the HCI
community: HCI Remixed! Our aim is to produce a collection of essays
in which researchers and practitioners reflect on a paper or other
piece of work by someone else, that is at least 10 years old, and
that has had a personal impact on their view of or approach to HCI.

We intend the essays to be brief (up to about 1800 words), personal
in tone, and reflective in nature. In form they are similar to book
reviews, but rather than taking a critical stance the goal is for
each essay to examine the positive impacts the work has had. We
believe that a collection of such work will provide a unique
perspective on how HCI has developed, will direct readers to
forgotten or underappreciated work, and will perhaps remind them that
their own work, by influencing others, can have a lasting impact on
the future of HCI.

The status of the project is that we've signed a letter of agreement
with MIT Press to publish a book, contingent, of course, on their
final approval; we also intend to launch a blog associated with the
