In 1997, @Wired magazine published a long file "the next 25 years will be incredibly prosperous for Humanity" before making a sidebar "unless one or two of these ten events occur". Enjoy !
I was chatting with someone today, and said, "we should advertise these Apple HCI/AI internships on hci.social" and the response was, "why would we do that? @barik already works here and it's just you an him on there."
help prove the naysayers wrong!
we are looking for interns in accessibility, UI toolkits, infovis, learning sciences, ML fairness, lots of cool technical things at the intersection of HCI and ML!
DM me and I'll connect you to the right folks.
Thanks to all the folks who shared feedback. Here’s the posted version of this!
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.
I’m a 5th-year Ph.D. CS student, advised by @Thomas Latoza. looking for research #jobs in the industry (e.g., Research/Applied Scientist, DX Researcher) at @ICSEconf. My research focuses on building tools for software developerment.
Interested in building tools🔧 👨💻

I’ve mentored amazing HCI students on the job market who have struggled to find industry jobs because they aren’t positioning themselves as AI researchers. Which seems like a warning sign to me.
Anyone else seeing these trends?
I also noticed over the last 5-10 years, a lot of HCI people in industry have pivoted, branding themselves as Human-AI Interaction researchers.
This maybe provides a more descriptive, tangible hook for how outside people can make sense of their work. But it also diluted the HCI brand.
When I was at a Microsoft Research, it was my experience that folks in the product group didn’t really know what to make of HCI research. They viewed MSR as a place where people thought up big, blue-sky ideas, but didn’t really think of HCI researchers as people who could execute on building real things that real people actually use.
Damn, still no edit button… *communities
This Mastodon server is by and for the community of human-computer interaction researchers. On the surface, Mastodon is like Twitter. 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.
