The Beginning of the End

20 Oct 2003

It's the last talk, and they're about to turn off the WiFi, so this'll be my last entry 'til I get home. It's been a good conference; I've heard about and seen some interesting work, met a lot of fun people, and drank quite a bit of surprisingly good Seattle beer. One thing I've noticed is that I seem to fall naturally into the role of devil's advocate; I'm defending arty projects and ethnography to systems people one minute, then electronics and tracking systems to HCI people the next. It's nice that there's such a range of specialities at one conference; I hope it stays that way, as opposed to fragmenting into narrower venues.
