My first day at CHI was awesome.
Because I know people here and there, somehow the world has become so much smaller. I remember talking to a phd student last year who said he was tired of CHI, because he kept seeing the same people over and over again.
But, to me, that\’s almost the greatest part. I make friends easily across the world. And I see them once a year. Enough to make me want to return every time.
