Friday, 19 April 2024

Subtitled "The Story of Interaction Techniques", this book provides a comprehensive study of the many ways to interact with computers and computerized devices. Beginning with a history of the invention and development of interaction techniques, Brad A Myers goes on to describe the various approaches in use today, continuing with a discussion of the state-of-the-art research that is driving the development of novel approaches for the future.


The book features summaries of interviews with some of the original inventors of interaction techniques, including David Canfield Smith (the desktop and icons), Larry Tesler (copy/paste), Ted Selker (IBM TrackPoint), Loren Brichter (Pull-to-Refresh), and many others. The author also describes how to use, model, implement, and evaluate new interaction techniques.
