Attended the Easy7 conference at Bangalore on 5th Jan. This time I saw a small crowd compared to last time. May be they didn't had enough seats. Well, it looks Chi-si.org has now changed its model of conference. I would now rather call it a workshop then conference. They didn't invited any papers. Last year I presented there on "standards based UI Design".
This year it was only invited speakers. They were Jeremy Ashley (Oracle), Bill Scott (Yahoo), Surya Vanka (Microsoft), Sarah Bloomer.
I have been attending the Easy conference for past 3yrs and each year i could see new faces. India is really growing in HCI.
There was going to be an evening meet called by folks from design-for-use. I missed it as i had to catch up with a meeting.
