CHI 2008

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 :/
