Back in Dublin after spending last week at CHI 2008 in Florence. I posted a few entries over on Sun’s design blog while I was there: [Day 1] [Day 2] [Day 3] [Day 4]
Main takeaways of GNOME interest, in no particular order:
- I/we really need to get the HIG moving again, preferably in a less monolithic fashion
- It will be really cool to see what sort of insight the InGimp data analysis gives us, and whether it would be feasible/worthwhile transferring the idea to GNOME.
- There still really aren’t many people working on open source usability projects, even in academia
Have posted a few photographs (in no particular order, and unedited) from my recent trip to CHI2004 in Vienna, where Matthias, Jiri and I presented a short paper entitled Professional Usability in Open Source Projects: NetBeans, GNOME and OpenOffice.
