Missing CHI 2008
This year I can't got to CHI in Florence due to family issues. When I am thinking about what I miss, it is obvious that the value of being at any conference is not so much in individual papers or presentations, but the sense of direction of the field that you can "feel in the air". This kind of experience depends on being there, it is extremely situated. So, what will the sense of direction for the future of HCI research be this year (which I will not be able to experience). I hope someone who is there will let me know!!!
