INTERACT 2009 had Research and Practice as its special theme. The r- son we selected this theme is that the research within the ?eld has drifted away from the practicalapplicability of its results and that the HCI practice has come to disregard the knowledge and development within the academic community.And so, a-priori, one might expect guanxi to be quite compatible with online gaming: a place in which to make social connections, feel ...
