“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

History of IxD

This is is a part of a presentation that Robert Reimann (Bose Corporation) and myself gave at the IDSA 2005 National Conference on Aug 27, 2005.

A History of Interaction Design (IxD).

Other histories worth takin’ a look at that I’ve found:

  • Marc Rettig’s History of Interaction Design
    This is a focused look at the changes in solutions and design practice for computing devices
  • Brad Myer’s “A Brief Hisotry of Human Computer Interaction Technology – an HCI specific short breakdown of various core components in computing interfaces.
    • I would love to get feedback on my presentation as well as to add to the list of histories.

      The core purpose of my history is 2-fold:

      First I would like to understand the similarities between different areas of design, as well as thinking of design as cohesive solutions.

      Second, I like to see how where we have gone and where we are going are instrinsically looped together, but bound by some unifying principals.
