Interviewing with Rikke Friis Dam and Mads Søgaard

Rikke Friis Dam and Mads Søgaard are currently working on a re-launch of the website The side has over the last years involved in a useful resource for researchers and practitioners in human computer interaction and interaction design. There is a very comprehensive calendar that includes most relevant events in HCI.

With their current work Rikke and Mads pursue a mission to create a new and free resource for teaching and learning interaction design and HCI. In a first step they work with researchers (like myself) around the world that are experts on a certain topic (in my case context-awareness and implicit interaction) to create new teaching materials. This includes a chapter (about 3000 words) that has tutorial character and interviews in which specific topics are discussed in more details.

It was great fun to work with them and I look forward to seeing the new material online.
