BayCHI logoIt’s time again for the BayCHI monthly program meeting. The meeting in February features Ed H. Chi from PARC and Scott Golder from HP Labs. Ed Chi will be talking about conflict and coordination in the online encyclopedia Wikipedia. In the second part of the Program Scott Golder will be presenting results from a study of the behavior 4+ million users of the social network Facebook which is primarily used by college students.

Before the program I am volunteering to coordinate the pre-program dinner which is held at the Pro Bono Cafe Restaurant in Palo Alto. This is a great opportunity to meet the speakers before the talk and get a chance to get them, and other participants to know.

BayCHI Monthly Program: December 12

BayCHI Logo Today I’m going to the PARC (Palo Alto Research Center) where the monthly BayCHI program meeting takes place. This month program features Sean Kane, Director of User Interface Engineering at Netflix. He is presenting a case study about the development of a great user interface. This should be very interesting since Netflix is the world’s largest DVD rental service and a lot of other online DVD rental companies try to catch up with them, e.g. Blockbuster.The second half of the program is about “How do people use search engines?”. Daniel M. Russel, senior research scientist at Google, will be there to elaborate on how the use of multiple kinds of data can be used to understand what people do when searching.

Before the program I am volunteering to coordinate the pre-program dinner which is held at the Kan Zeman Restaurant in Palo Alto. This is a great opportunity to meet the speakers before the talk and get a chance to get them, and other participants to know.
