Towards a capability maturity rubric for Sustainable HCI

July 19, 2016

I’ve long been a fan of Bob Willard’s organisational sustainability maturity index – here’s a post from 2007. I’ve used it many times, including this talk to Young Enterprise. Now for a book chapter I’m writing with Oliver Bates we’ve had a go at using it for a rubric for considering the sustainabilityness of Human […]

Upcoming workshop: The role of ICT in transforming society through engaged communities

July 20, 2015

Jeffrey argues that we should look beyond the usual normative criteria to judge argument/essay papers: Do I agree […]
