HCI Colleagues

It's not too late to be part of the iConference 2011 in Seattle - see  
official info below.  This will be the largest and the strongest  
iConference ever (imho - though "ever" in this case means since 2006).

It still seems under-appreciated in the HCI/CHI community that  
iSchools are emerging as the best fit for HCI in the arcane landscape  
of universities.  This is why the best young HCI academics  
increasingly turn up as assistant professors in iSchools.

Come to Seattle and see for yourself.  Hope to see you there.


P.S. It's also a bargain - less than 1/2 the cost of CHI reg, less  
than 1/3 for students.
