What is the spirit of SIGCHI? 
How has the CHI Community functioned so successfully for 35 years?

The SIGCHI Executive Council sponsored Scott Kushner, Asst Prof of Communication Studies, Univ. of Rhode Island's Harrington School of Communication & Media, to dig into and tell the story of the CHI Community. His three 2-minute videos use my photo collection and the voices of CHI leaders to reflect on how the CHI Community is BIG, BOLD and GENEROUS. 

These videos were shown at the CHI2017 Denver Conference and are now available for you to enjoy and show to your colleagues and students. The CHI Community has been remarkably successful with its sustained growth and astonishing impact. Scott Kushner's videos are one way that we can be telling and spreading its inspirational stories.
