CS Distinguished Lecture Series: Reflections on 20 Years Doing HCI Systems Research

Abstract -- In 1994, I started building interactive systems and while more of the programming is now done by my students than me, I can not resist the thrill of designing and building something that solves real problem or explores new ways of interacting with data. Even after building over a dozen major systems, I continue to struggle with what I find to be an impedance mismatch with systems building and the world of academia. I have managed to have some level of success, but in many ways, it was through a matter of luck and timing.
