I recently organized a CHI workshop on Brain and Body Interfaces together with Kiel and Steve from PhysiologicalComputing.net. We have been talking about common interests for a while now and it was great to organize this workshop together as it is the second one on this topic at CHI that I was involved in. Since we were discussing about other possible venues to disseminate research or at least keep the discussion going in our research area, we have been trying out things like a BBI wiki, an attempt at a blog about affective gaming and also using the Physiological Computing website to enhance the workshop and allow more people to see our research discussions. Kiel did an excellent job at preparing all the videos from the workshop online. For an example, see the following video of my workshop talk.
So, after the excellent efforts that went into this CHI workshop, we decided to bundle our energies and I will integrate the future posts that I had planned for affective gaming into the Physiological Computing website. I am excited about their blogging team, although experience shows that with an academic day job, often not much time is left for these postings. I hope for the best though.
