Intelligence and awareness are interesting places to draw distinctions,
I'll grant you that, Dave. But they do have their own problems. What is
intelligence? Or awareness? How do we measure them in products? Is a
light switch waiting for a human to flick it an example of interaction
design? Or, if variety is added into the mix, a thermostat? And if we
talk about designing systems, how do we define intelligence and
awareness in those? A level of complexity?
We're getting into a weird area here that's probably pretty academic...
