We need more people to help us sort out the course; to rise your concens, to help right any wrongs, to adress any issues! Robert Fohlin, David Andersson, and Mao Tiezheng have already volunteered to be course representatives, but since there's so many of you, we want two more, preferably someone who can represent the GU-students and another non-Swedish student. So, volunteer, and if you don't we'll just assign two more! It's three meetings, i.e. ca 2,5 hours of work in total.
We couldn't but check out your "something odd about me"-comments (listed below in a slightly edited format), and you turn out to be a wonderful class, full or strange experiences, likes, dislikes and skills! Nope, no names listed (I didn't want to out you!); go find out yourselves who wrote what! And some extra cred to you who made this drawing; most creative entry of the day!

For various reasons Cremona never got the information about our course book, and has thus not ordered it. Since you have a written exam where you answer questions from the book’s reading list (download it from the Files-block to the right) in week 6, and since you have lots to do in the last weeks of the course, you might want to have the book already when the course starts, so you can start reading!
The book is: About face 3: the essentials of interaction design, by Cooper, Reimann & Cronin, published by Wiley.
It’s available from Bokus (226 SEK – a good price for a good book!)
Or, apparently you can have it as an ebook from Chalmers’ library, have no idea how that works, but give it a shot!
