Amusement: Little Red Riding Hood, with infographics


I can't tell you much more than "it amused me and it's not an April
Fool's joke so far as I can tell."

Best regards,

New York Public Library\'s Infomaki

Hey this is pretty nice. I sort of feel like it's a bit much being asked
after every question if I want to answer another. I think I'd prefer just
telling me up front I can click a very prominent "EXIT" button to move on
once I get tired of answering questions. Then each question wouldn't
require me to explicitly say I'm willing to answer.

But I like the way it asks where would you click and I can just do that. I
assume it might be timing how long I sit there..

Interaction '09 Keynote - Dan Saffer - Attention Awareness for Interaction Designers 2009

Timing this release after the storm of, ahem, activity, on the list. In this
keynote from Interaction '09, Dan Saffer calls out the Interaction Design
community for allowing distracting topics to consume our attention, and for
paying too little attention to "moonwalking bears," the opportunities
interaction designers can take advantage of in the near future.

On the discussions on definitions, titles, and similar topics,"where is this
getting us?" Dan says, "The work is still there for us to do. Having
religious wars about how we approach design is pointless.
