Overview

Thoughts on Interaction Design, Second Edition, contemplates and contributes to the theory of Interaction Design by exploring the semantic connections that live between technology and form that are brought to life when someone uses a product. These connections may be thought of as interactions that, in aggregate, make up behavior, and are beginning to hint that a field known as design is a legitimately separate area of study alongside science or art.
This text defines Interaction Design in a way that emphasizes the intellectual and cultural facets of the discipline. It discusses the role of language, argument, and rhetoric in the design of products, services, and systems. This idea of language is extended to poetry, and the idea of a poetic interaction that affects not only the mind and body but also the soul is introduced. The text examines the process Interaction Designers in approaching complicated problems related to behavior and time. This process includes structuring large quantities of data, thinking about users, and attempting to support human behavior as it unfolds over time. Finally, the text prescribes a purposeful extraction of Interaction Design from the confines of business to leverage the design process for social, political, and economic problem solving.

*Provides new and fresh insights on designing for behavior in a world of increased connectivity and mobility and how design education has evolved over the decades

*Maintains the informal-yet-informative voice that made the first edition so popular
