Heaps o' interaction design links. Posted on 08/12/2001.

A veritable treasure trove of linky love for y'all...

From RRE:

  • Interaction Spaces for 21st Century Computing - Terry Winograd's take on where interaction design is heading in the ubiquitous world
  • Designing for Communities
  • Sticker Shock - The Rising Costs of Scientific Journals - I'm finding the whole debate around the publishing and costs of scientific journals fascinating. In large part because it's so overwhelmingly clear that scientific journals are a vestige of an earlier economic reality, now superceded by networked publishing. A lengthy look at the discussion can be found here.

    Maneesh, creator of LineDrive, pointed me to this lengthy presentation on treemaps, a form of data visualization he feels to be of some value.

    Jess pointed me to Dodge Magazine, which, on page 19 (yes, you have to page through) has an intriguing display of transit maps.
