Not sure if anybody else has read Jon Kolko's book "Thoughts on
Interaction Design", but I found it to be a bold series of
commentaries on what we do. I don't always agree with what Jon says,
but I love his choice of topics. Great stuff - on a lot of issues
that don't often get talked or written about. He has included some
articles by others as well - Ellen Beldner's piece (google) is
particularly good. I chuckled in empathy at least a dozen times.
