"Conversation with Computers"


Archway 2 - 1:00 pm, Friday 07 October


How do we design a simple, sensible user-interface? Why is it so hard? Have we made any real progress in the last 40 years? How come we make the same mistakes with 3D graphics, 2D graphics and plain text? Do we even understand the user interface of a spade?

I offer a personal view based on 44 years of trying. There will be stories and pictures and I will ask more questions than I answer.
