human interaction design
Kay starts with history-in-demos of GUIs, including videos of Sutherland’s Sketchpad, Englebart’s Mother of all Demos, and PARC’s research. He then shares some insights on human learning, including a “20-minute tennis lesson.”
A detailed criticism of the state-of-the-industry in 1997, and a walk-through of Kay’s values for good software design. A great way to understand OO’s basic intentions and find some context for the last 15 years of software.
A criticism of industry culture and modern architectural decisions.
