as experience has shown us
the question of how to "chunk" presentation data
for maximal content comprehension 
has different answers 
for different presentation form-factors...

for a recent discussion in the mobile domain, see:
  http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mobile-content-comprehension.html

one of our instructors here at RIT 
has kindly agreed to take on 
as a project for an HCI class she teaches
the question of how much text
(and maybe what text/graphics mix)
sets the user up for maximal content comprehension 
in the environment of "the 10-foot UX"
(which is how I am thinking about 
 the Web-connected TV sitting in my living-room)

we will be using one of the GoogleTV boxes 
that they kindly donated to us
and we'll post to the list from time to time
as things get rolling this new term

if you _have_ and use a Web-connected TV 
yourself
then you might consider being an interview victim...
ummm
I mean "volunteer"
of course
