With hci.social going down last night due to massive load of so many users, it's basically like using Facebook back in 2003. definitely the start of something big!

all users have high visual acuity, amazing motor dexterity, and superb cognitive ability and attention

Just had a chat with ELIZA (1964) at the Computer Games Museum. Asked about AI sentience. Best answer yet:

‘Why are you interested in whether or not I am sentient?’

in the HCII at CMU, we have traditionally thought of HCI as having three pillars … Design, Technnical/CS, and Behavioral Sciences … that doesn't mean other domains or areas aren't relevant, only that it's hard to be a good HCI researchers without depth in one ore more of these and familiarity with all of them… discuss?

I'm speaking at NAACL next week in a workshop on HCI + NLP … I'm still writing my talk, but it'll mix an argument about what HCI methods can bring to technical work, and include a bunch of examples from my group's work on dialog systems sites.google.com/view/hciandnl

Anyone know any good HCI-related “dad jokes”?

I'm working on this blog post about the knowledge management problem we're trying to solve at my startup. Would love some feedback from hci.social before I publish this on Monday.


For context, I'm hoping it might attract interest/discussion among the productivity blogger community.

Also, I totally made up the three patterns here, but they feel right. If you know of any research I can point to, that would be a huge help.

@jbigham @andresmh if I understand the bias variance tradeoff from statistics, that means there’s hardly any variance then, right? And since variance is the same as risk, then this sounds like a pretty solid investment.

check out these super weird mammatus clouds from pittsburgh yesterday -- this photo was taken from my front porch around 9pm

i downloaded my twitter it's 703 Mb, is that my legacy?

I've been listening to a lot of 70s music; today's music needs more flute

if this thing becomes sentient, would @andresmh even let us know?

@justin @jbigham @blair @karger @vibhav96 @andresmh hey YOU, I wanted to say WELCOME. Why haven't you posted? DO YOU NOT FEEL WELCOMED?

I am disappointed there is not a mastadon client called “tout suite” … discuss.

hey everyone, i feel like a mastadon traitor, but we're having a pretty fun discussion about how and when crowd workers are human subjects over on musk.com:


non-tech social question -- I am constantly finding little poop bags on my property … on trash day, they are very often in my empty trash cans (often in my recycling bins). often, they appear by my trees. I used to think people just hated me in particular, but it seems like this is common.

I don't get it. someone has picked up their own dog's poop, but can't carry it somewhere appropriate to get rid of it? maybe it's harder to hide not picking it up, than it is to throw it down later?

However, the difference is that it is open-source, decentralized, and federated. This server is sponsored by @Princeton HCI and administered by a growing committee of volunteers.
