I was really excited to see all of the interest in FLOSS, and very happy to see it carried on this year, since Michael Terry and Paula Bach organized a full-day FLOSS HCI Workshop at CHI 2010 in Atlanta, GA.
I shared my submission with you earlier, and I’m hoping the submissions of other attendees are going to be available as well soon. I arrived exactly an hour late (flight delay) and was dismayed to see that I completely missed the introductions.
It was really great to put a face to the names on the submissions I’d read, and I think it set the stage well for the rest of the day.

Through my doctoral research I have advanced and refined as a design approach that aids design teams in more successfully investigate radical alterations to technologies’ roles, forms, and behaviors in uncharted design spaces.
