The annual CHI (computer-human interaction) conferences are the main meetings for user-interface professionals. This year?s conference was the largest ever, and it left me with the overriding impression that the emerging trend is engagement: making user interfaces emotionally appealing. This experiential perspective contrasts with earlier conferences, which were dominated by a cognitive science perspective that focused on using computers for problem solving and complex tasks.
