I had a wonderful time last week in Texas exploring the many pleasantries that is CHI. This is my second year attending the conference, the first was last year in Vancouver. I can say that as I develop along my academic journey, the appreciation and experience of these events becomes invaluable. Technology exhibits that expand your concept of “what-is-possible”, watching colleagues speak with such passion for their topics and getting to contribute a little more each year. This year my work on Mobile Commerce Trust was accepted as a Work in Progress.
After the event I was lucky enough to check out a couple other cities in Texas. After Austin we headed to Corpus Christi on the Texas coast, and finally San Antonio. Corpus Christi offered what one might expect, a beautiful ocean and a wonderful beach town feeling. While San Antonio allowed us to explore historical locations, such as the Alamo, while staying in a haunted hotel on the battle field.
