This is a little art project that I’ve had on my plate for a while. Seeing as how many of us just submitted to CHI, I thought we could use a bit of humor. These “Deaths, Delays, and Doubts of Academic Projects” are inspired by the Gashlycrumb Tinies by Edward Gorey.
Thank you to: Gregory Abowd for all of the “D”ebates and “K”een critiques that have contributed to my research in immeasurable ways; Eugene Medynskiy for turning “S” into an engagement, even if it didn’t lead to a paper; Andrew Miller for the pun in “T”; and, Andy Wilson for being cool about being called out in “W.”
