Along with some fantastic collaborators, we have a new article published in the ACM Interactions magazine that describes why we need to craft a more persistent and stable place for attending to the ‘things’ of design–artifacts, systems, services, and other forms–at the annual CHI conference. This article is in part a synopsis of two highly successful workshops that we have co-organized at CHI 2016 and CHI 2017, and in part an invitation for others to participate in this effort.
