Action, Interaction, Reaction is a long and thoughtful look at the practice of interaction design.

“Interaction design, the best term we have to describe the skills we have acquired to mediate our interactions with the digital and networked world, will be one of the key practices of our century, and executed well will help realise the potential of the network society that has been tantalisingly hinted at in the past five years.”

I really appreciate the presence of ergonomic concerns
“Architecture is about body-sized, furniture about hand-sized, and PCs about finger-sized interactions.”
but I do think the eye is the actor over the finger. Still the body cannot be ignored.

Also explored is the history of interaction design, and its relationship to interface design, brand and business.
