My position paper “Public policy impact on interaction design in networked environments” has been accepted for the workshop organized by the SIGCHI US Public Policy Committee (SIGCHI is the Computer- Human Interaction special interest group (SIGCHI) of the ACM). I need to make some changes to the paper but it basically talks about the possible changes on the Internet infrastructure that could affect the end user experience.

CHI 2006 - MontrealSome of the topics worth discussing:

  • Network neutrality (see previous post)
  • How network neutrality (or the lack of it) would impact user experience with his activities online
  • the opportunity to give more information about the network connection and more control to the user
  • Do we need new laws and what should these laws say?
