Robert Fabricant talks about Interaction Design as a practice beyond just computing technology. He gives examples of Interaction Design as far back as ancient history, all the way to a humanitarian project underway today. He shows that Interaction Design's primary medium is behavior, extending far past the high technology world into the realm of human behavior and relationships.
As the social mood darkens and economy thickens, some people realize
that the mainstream media is often a marketing tool for shaping the
conversation. Some things are never discussed or mentioned.
What is missing is a little more "fact outing" (of things we're
not talking about) and "full disclosure." (to reveal the
motivations of those pressing opinions). Sadly, some very basic
truths are only talked about in the "alternative media." I would
argue that the information is out there, but not professional and
floating in a sea of misinformation.
