The 7th Annual Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems
CHI'90 will provide an environment where Computer-Human Interaction comes
alive, where understanding and ideas are developed, where new styles, techniques
and applications are explored. CHI'90 will be more than a conference, it
will be an event.
1990 April 1-5
In addition to an excellent and international tutorial and technical program,
we will be presenting "EMPOWERED", a set of live interactive performances,
and making the latest in interaction available for hands- on exploration
in "THE INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE". CHI '90 will not only be a technically
excellent event, it will be FUN and an experience to remember.
The CHI '90 Conference will be held at the Washington State Convention and
Trade Center in Seattle, Washington with additional events being held next
door in the Seattle Sheraton.

EMPOWERED, the interactive performance!
Humans and computers take to the stage in the most demanding CHI forum ever
- performing live with interactive instruments and systems! No bugs, out-takes
or edits - the ultimate demonstration of man-machine trust as the show must
go on! Motion-to-music, software soloists, video virtuality, hacking harmonies,
augmented action, and more...
I don't know how I got through it with a bad cold, a carton of lemonade
to clear my throat, and no hemp in my system
for weeks (since I was studying for Xerox's
Urine Test at the time), using a live Sun duct taped to the table and
carried out onto stage just before I went on, to perform pie
menus and pseudoscientific
visualizations at breakneck speed!
Many thanks to Craig Hubley, Wm Lehrer, Jutta Degener and Sue Bowen for
all the support and giving me the courage to go on stage pull the performance
off twice in a row!
