Benko and Daniel Wigdor on Rock & Rails
I went to SIGCHI last week and met up with Benko and Daniel Wigdor who were presenting their paper on Rock and Rails, several new gesture paradigms being explored in Microsoft Research. If you're a Channel 9 regular, you already know Benko, but this is Daniel's first time on C9. Daniel is someone I had always hoped to interview for Channel 9 while he was at MSR, but never got the opportunity until now that he's left to teach at University of Toronto, a school known for its work in multi-touch. Daniel was a very influential User Experience Architect at Microsoft and it was always a pleasure to sit in on one of his presentations. If you are a Varsity Blue student, don't miss his classes.
