What's new at CHI this year?

I'm the Technical Program Chair for CHI2006, and I thought this list would
be interested in some of the new things we are doing this year that should
make CHI a "can't miss" experience.

First, CHI is in Montreal, a beautiful city, full of French food, old world
ambience, and beautiful spring weather. The dates are April 24-27, plus two
days of preconference activities (workshops and a Doctoral Consortium).

We've made a lot of changes to the conference this year, primarily to make
it more attractive to practitioners.

do you like iAds as a iPhone end-user?

Hi Guys,

As mobile advertising comes, do you like banner Ads in your (free) apps? Myself dislike it, as well as others. But some guy can accept it, especially when it's free.
How about you?

Five Lenses: Towards a Toolkit for Interaction Design

Well, I am not sure how valuable such very abstract essays are. It sure
doesn't help most practitioners in their daily work. I'd even doubt that the
'theorists' have much to gain from this essay. A lot of this kind of
'de-constructionistic theories' (not sure of that is proper English...:-)
lead to a 'analytic view on (a part of) the world' and they are only in some
cases useful for the 'construction' of new things in the world of
'interaction design'.

In other words, what is the problem that this essay addresses? That there
isn't a unified theory for interaction design? Do we need one?

up/down; forward/back; right/left

Hi gang,

I'm working on a project where we are trying to figure out in a horizontal
layout for physical buttons that are used for navigating a list of options
(primarily) that are layed out vertically how would you layout these

So you have a button on the left and another one on the right.
while button goes up the list and which button goes down?

Here are some cursory thoughts.
#1 Forward = add = up
Based on that a "volume control" seems to be the most used example and
adding volume (going up) is always on the right.

#2 If we look though at the same metaphor which is a k
