What is wrong with CHI for Deigners (was RE: Fwd: alt.chi 2007 - first call for submissions)

Both Jon and Alex have good cause to take me to task and ask for more
details about my comments about CHI. Many people on this list and in the IxD
community work hard to bring the CHI conferences to life and criticisms
should not be left to be random or ambiguous and I apologize for doing so.

My "data" is qualative in nature and the sources are indeed not
comprehensive and possibly may not be generalizable.

Critiquing the Office 2007

There is a lot of published detail that is quite convincing about how
they came to this design and what problems they are hoping to solve
from earlier Office designs.

It's convincing about the problems they were trying to solve, but not
convincing about the approach they took to solve them. In other
words, I understand the problems they were trying to solve, but don't
think they went about it in the correct way.

1. Their first problem is with the application.

Creating coherent user experiences across many independent data-driven sites

Hi all,

So I'm working on an intranet project for an organization providing access
to a set of in-house catalogs, research tools, and 80+ subscription-based
databases. Users run the gamut from newbies to professional researchers
within the organization. The role of the site we're working on is mostly to
provide a user-friendly gateway to the assets with as much context and help
as possible.

Federated search is available but only contains a small subset of the
assets. We have limited (read: none whatsoever) control over the assets
