CHI can be a multisensory overload. Attendees endure days of workshops, presentations, evening parties, and ephemeral interactions. This paper attempts to disrupt that onslaught of activities [9]. It draws inspiration from theories and methods already in HCI—e.g. mindfulness [1], reflec- tive design [8], and slow design [4, 7]—to bring eight pages of silence to the conference. This is meant to disrupt CHI’s busy schedule and help attendees foster resilience. In pur- suit of these aims, the authors will use the time and pages offered by this paper to facilitate a group silence; quiet, for just a moment, in the midst of the hurricane that is CHI.
