as per an earlier email to the list
a 3-student HCI grad student group here at RIT
has taken on the problem of how much text or text/graphics mix
is right for a "chunk" to be displayed on a Web-connected TV

more formally I have posed the problem as:

  audience: users of Web-connected TVs
  goal: to gather and analyze data to determine 
          how much and what mix of text and graphics
          to present to maximize user comprehension

they will be using one of the GoogleTV devices
which Google so kindly donated for our work here

we just had our first meeting
and will continue meeting with the students 
on a weekly basis  (probably fridays)...
I will update the list with their work-progress 
probably also on a weekly basis
as the term and the study moves along

I am very much looking forward to having
data-driven best-practices recommendations
to inform the work and work-products 
of the W3C "Web and TV Interest Group"
