These resources are meant to make life easier for students doing and writing about design and computer science research. More specifically, they are intended for students working with me on such projects; I frequently refer to ideas covered in these resources, so they form a common ground on which we can communicate easily.
Philip Guo's articles on CS and HCI research experiences
A trove of well-written, insightful commentary on how to thrive doing CS and HCI research as a PhD student, postdoc, and faculty.
Examples of (mostly software) projects dealing with "information that a person does not know, but can access as needed using technology" - AR/VR, computer graphics, data visualization, machine learning, digital arts, novel user interfaces, etc.
Constantly up-to-date overview on technology-related news and olds. Easy to get lost in, but a daily skim provides a good dose of much-needed perspective.
How to Start a Startup by Sam Altman
I find that many ideas covered in this class are extremely helpful for running any kind of project, not just commercial tech startups.

Interaction Design by Preece, Sharp & Rogers
A fine introductory textbook for newcomers. Explains many common HCI/IxD concepts concisely. Use this as a first reference when trying to decipher HCI/IxD papers.
The Human Computer Interaction Handbook by Jacko
A more comprehensive, detailed reference book on concepts and methods in HCI/IxD research. Make sure to read the relevant chapters in this book before you start an HCI research project on a specific topic, and especially before you decide on and implement a specific method.

The slides used in my lectures can be downloaded from the links below. Please note that the slides are meant to accompany the talk and not function by themselves, and much of the visual content has been removed and replaced with links due to file size and intellectual property considerations. As such, these files are intended as a resource/reminder for students who have already attended the lectures. They are not meant to be useful in themselves.
