So, in response to a short article by the ACM CHI Program chair titled "A Cry for More Tech at CHI!.", I wrote a blog post (titled "What? You want us to be your Dancing Bears?") saying why I thought this request was off the mark.
After a lively discussion in the comments, parts of my article and some of the followup commentary, were posted in ACM Interactions last month. Perhaps inevitably, a number of us were not satisfied with the outcome of that post.
So, we'd like to collect some more comments and reflections, and author a longer, more well thought out discussion in an upcoming issue.
So, please, if you have thoughts about how (or how not) to include interactive demos at CHI, chime in!
