I’ll just pretend I’m a planet invaded by Russians from space station Vir. You know: “viruses”… OK. Sorry. Just trying to lighten up the mood.   Will report back when I’ve kicked them back into space…

History of Human-Computer Interaction

This is the history of Human-Computer Interaction according to my students They start in 1951. That is actually not too bad: I’ve had students start in 1750 or in 1985 before… And this is how I see it I keep being puzzled by how fast things seem to go on…

Pfffww...

It’s been a while. The reason is really simple: I’m a bit tired… Take that in a very literal sense. I’m not tired of blogging, or life or something like that. I’m just tired. Really Tired. I’ve discovered new levels of tiredness. Can you imagine that…

Are you interested in Formula 1 car racing? Good for you… Some of my students are interested in Formula 1 too. And they take my course on information visualisation. So they built a visualisation of the results. And they blogged about it, so you can try it…

Not (just) mr. Cancer Guy anymore...

Since a year, most of my posts here have been about my struggle with cancer. Well, struggle… Let’s say that cancer tried to kill me, and that I underwent the chemo treatment and tried to stay alive, with the help of many friends. It didn’t feel like a…

Cancer day...

Apparently, tomorrow is World Cancer Day… I’m not sure about this concept of having days for specific topics. I mean: is there a World Ebola Day? A World Political Prisoners Day? A Let’s-get-rid-of-religious-and-other-bigotry Day? There are only 365 days…
