I will be appearing on January 18th from 6:30pm-8:30pm on a panel at the next NYC SIG-CHI meeting. I will be discussing wireless networks and building software for wireless broadband use. I’ll be concentrating my talk on NYCwireless and the software that I and others have built to make use of our Wi-Fi networks. I’ll also talk a bit about social software and how wireless technologies play a role in bringing social software into more natural social situations.
The panel should be fun. Scott Weiss of Usable Products will speak on quantitative research for mobile devices. Josh Rubin, formerly with UPOC and now on his own, and John Devanney of MOMENT will also be speaking. I expect there will be much open discussion about the different aspects of mobile design.
