The evolution of HCI education does not take place in a vacuum, nor is it only controlled by the academics and practitioners close to its core. In this paper we reflect on the causes of change in the HCI curriculum and consider what has been lost and found during these changes.
Taking inspiration from both the theme of the workshop and the cultural richness of the workshop location we consider the value of change, and contrast the needs for preservation of valued artifacts with the need for artifacts that reflect the modern age; streamlined and efficient.
Our paper concludes with a manifesto for the modern HCI age.
