Welcome to the SIGCHI E-Bulletin

Jonathan Arnowitz outlines the future plans for the SIGCHI Bulletin.

Welcome to the first launch, and first iteration of the SIGCHI E-Bulletin. This first email edition is part of the changing face of ACM/SIGCHI, namely to get our members involved in our organization. The new SIGCHI Bulletin will achieve this by informing members of current developments, issues and debates in SIGCHI.

In the coming months, we will launch a web site which will be the new home of the E-Bulletin. This web site will evolve to better suit our needs as more and more member use and give feedback. Eventually, the web site will be updated regularly by SIGCHI Officers and other volunteers. You will receive an email notification of the pending issues and discussions well in advance of the SIGCHI Executive Committee (EC) Meetings so that you can give your input to the EC before these meetings take place. Then to inform the membership of the results of this debate, the resulting decisions will be printed in a special section of both interactions Magazine and the web site.

The E-Bulletin will be 'published' once every other month (August, October and December for 2004) with possible special editions if an urgent issue arises. Until the web site is set up, the E-Bulletin will be an email with some co-published information in interactions. I am pleased to say that virtually every member of the executive committee has contributed to the first issue, bringing you up to date on the pressing issues facing SIGCHI.

One last administrative word: because your involvement to SIGCHI is of vital importance, you are receiving this email because you are a member of SIGCHI. Starting the next issue, a special mailing list will be created. You can, though I can’t imagine why you would want to, opt out of this list. The following SIGCHI Bulletin will have more details. (Until then it is useless to send me any email trying to prevent you from receiving this second issue, but you can complain about it, because it is my job to make sure that this E-Bulletin adds value to your life and in no way resembles or constitutes Spam.) Future issues of the E-Mail portion of the Bulletin will be shorter as more and more of the details will be on the web site.
