- The Humane Interface: New Directions for Designing Interactive Systems
- Jef Raskin
- Acclaimed user interface guru Jef Raskin was in charge of the original Macintosh project at Apple. After a tiff with Steve Jobs, Raskin left to find greener pastures. But his relentless search for a better user interface never ceased. And this text is the overview of his "humane" interface for computers.
Radically different from WIMP interfaces we know today, the Humane Interface is compelling and alien, but calls out to be tested.
Raskin's book may not convince you that his interface is the best, but it will provide input into how computer-human interfaces are evaluated.
