Tom and I are at UI9 in Boston this week. We’ll let you know how things are when we get back. If you’re in the area, do drop us a line and we’ll see if we can do a meet up or something. Don’t worry, we’re not laxing on the discussions just because we’re seeing LL Spool J and the Adaptive Path Voltron. Our weekly discussion post is forthcoming. I just wanted you to have your comic fix before you ended your week!
A friend of mine once answered, when asked why he joined an MSc program in HCI, “I studied computer science in my undergraduate and I want to become bilingual.” The term is interesting because it implies the two roles speak different languages. If that is indeed the case, how can any communication occur? In software, these teams must work closely together. Overcoming communication barriers is not only about understanding each other but also, perhaps more importantly, avoiding misunderstanding each other.
