DONALD A. NORMAN: THE DESIGN OF EVERYDAY THINGS IN THE 21ST CENTURY

This event is in conjunction with the LA UX Meetup. Please go there to RSVP!

The Design of Everyday Things was first published in 1988. Even though the fundamental principles of human interaction introduced in that book are still true, a lot has changed since then. The examples in the book reveal its age: "What is a slide projector?" students ask me. But more importantly, the technology of interaction has changed. Oh yes, we still have doors and switches, faucets and taps to bedevil us, but we now have intelligent machines, continuous interaction with large data sources and social networks that enable life-long interaction with friends and acquaintances across the world.
