Current design approaches aim to optimize the experience of using an object, with the effect of constraining our experience to the prosaic Lots of interesting material there, especially the vocabulary “user-unfriendlyness”, “inhuman factors”, “post-optimal object”the richness of example and the aims.

The result, as the computer industry merges with other industries, is that the optimisation of the psychological fit between people and electronic technology, for which the industry strives, is spreading beyond the work environment to areas such as the home which have so far acted as a counterpoint to the harsh functionality of the workplace.

Certainly food for thoughts about critical design that I need to integrate djnne my work and connect to gales research.

The most important elements of this approach are: The conclusion offers a good summary:.
