I recommend these 2 articles for:
* their valuable insights on the interdisciplinary nature of IxD
* "6 blind men & an elephant"
* the interaction designer as filmmaker
Anurida Joshi also raises the emerging issue of "human-computer interfaces for the next generation of users from developing countries." hmmmmm.....
In a somewhat related vein: Check out Jakob Neilsen's recent Alertbox, which addresses "Low Literacy Users". What should one consider when designing (an English-language) UI that will also be used by people who have English as a second language? Do the same perceptual/comprehension issues & constraints apply? I'm working on an international corporate site that services a global population who are often ESL (English as Second Language).
