    Microsoft Hires Famed Human-Computer Interaction Researcher Bill Buxton.
    Bill Buxton is a designer and a researcher concerned with human aspects of technology. His work reflects a particular interest in the use of technology to support creative activities such as design, film making and music. Buxton's research specialties include technologies, techniques and theories of input to computers, technology mediated human-human collaboration, and ubiquitous computing.

    It is with more than a little excitement that I want to announce that on Dec. 5, I assumed a new position as Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research. For someone with my background, this is a great opportunity, as well as a healthy challenge. The opportunity is to be in the best position imaginable to leverage 30+ years of accumulated work. As someone who has always been driven by making a positive difference in how people experience technology, what more could I ask for? It is also an opportunity to work with some of the best researchers in the world, both inside and outside of Microsoft, to continue making a difference. via BillBuxton.


    In 1995, Buxton received the Canadian Human-Computer Communications Society Achievement Award for his contributions to research in computer graphics and human-computer interaction. He also was selected as the New Media Visionary of the Year at the 2000 Canadian New Media Awards, and the Hollywood Reporter named him one of the 10 most influential innovators in the North American film industry in 2001.

    Before joining Microsoft Research, Buxton was principal of his own Toronto-based design and consulting firm as well as chief scientist at Bruce Mau Design Inc. in Toronto. He also is an associate professor in the department of computer science at the University of Toronto. From 1994 through 2002, Buxton served as chief scientist of Alias|Wavefront (now Alias Systems Corp.) and, starting in 1995, of its parent company, SGI Inc.

    Good for him. I'm looking forward for a new GUI from Microsoft for their next release.
