The way from Arizona to California led me to UC Irvine. What a great place for human computer interaction. I paid a short visit to the lab of human center computing. It was a pleasure to talk to Yunan Chen and Gillian Hayes at the School of Information and Computer Science and in the School of Education and School of Medicine at UC Irvine. and also spend some time with her phd students. I was giving talk in the lab on our research on pervasive health research. UCI is the place in which our good friend Prof. Ramesh Jain is working in the field of multimedia. It was a wonderful surprise to see how much HCI research is now present at UCI.
