who's going to cscw?

Sunday I leave for Chicago, where I’ll be attending the ACM CSCW (computer-supported collabortive work) conference. The technical program runs Monday through Wednesday, and I’m speaking on a panel that danah boyd put together Wednesday. The topic is “The Use of Digital Backchannels in Shared Physical Spaces,” and the list of other participants on the panel is great.

I’ve skimmed through the list of speakers, and recognize a few names from both the literature and from the Microsoft social software symposium back in the spring. Who’s going that’s not speaking?

And what’s the chance of a blogger meetup in Chicago while I’m there? In addition to seeing the information highwayman and his faithful sidekick, there are a few Chicago bloggers I’d love to meet (or see again). I’ll be there from Sunday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon, staying at the Hilton—and at present, I have no evening plans.
