Dear HCIL and friends,

   Here's an upcoming free event you might enjoy.
I'll do my dress up as Leonardo at:

Politics & Prose Bookstore and Coffeehouse
5015 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20008

Sunday, November 10, 5 p.m.
With DaVinci serving as the muse for a universal "new technology," LEONARDO'S
LAPTOP: Human Needs and the New Computing Technologies (MIT, $24.95) pushes for
a new breed of software that is accessible to novices and experts alike, young
and old, able and disabled-transforming and empowering instead of intimidating
users. Ben Shneiderman wonders what types of software DaVinci would have
developed, and suggests new developments in medicine, education, business, as
well as government-proposing a need-based, not profit-driven, development
