Don Norman Speaks Live on the Net -- Don Norman, Apple Fellow, former Apple User Experience Architect, and expert in the field of human interface design, will give a talk via the Internet at the KMi Stadium on Wednesday, 15-May-96. The talk will take place at 5 PM British Summer Time (noon on the east coast in the United States; 9 AM on the west coast). To participate, I recommend dropping by the KMi Stadium Web site before the talk and trying out one of the previous presentations. The Web site has links for locating RealAudio (which you need) and for CU-SeeMe (which is optional). I assume you'll also be able to play back the talk after Don's live appearance, though you must attend the talk live in order to be one of the lucky few who get to ask Don a question. [TJE]
