About

The blog was created in conection with a Special Interest Group on User Interface History at CHI 2008 in Florence on April 10, 2008, co-organized with Brad Myers from Carnegie-Mellon University.

The Special Interest Group aims at
– investigating the possibilities of launching a concerted effort towards creating a History of User Interfaces
– gauging the interest, motivation and commitment towards UI/HCI History in the CHI community

If you are unfamiliar with this area
– UI is short for User Interfaces to computers and other types of computerized gear
– HCI is short for the academic field Human-Computer Interaction that addresses theoretical, methodological and practical aspects of understanding and developing technology for people
