I am soon going to spend a, hopefully, wonderful week in Helsinki. With two full papers accepted and the Doctoral Consortium, NordiCHI is loking great for me.
But this is not a bragging post. This is about the unqiue Nordic HCI community. I am extermyl lucky to be part of what we can now call an interlectual tradition that is rich and unique. We believe NordiCHI should not just be a smaller version of CHI and we are sticking to the plan. Both our papers are a bit unorthodox and I’m happy I’ll be able to present them to the diverese NordiCHI community.
This gives more hope that there is still room for HCI that investigates the space between Ps and Ns, social science and design. And that is great feeling.
