Designing Interactions

Designing Interactions

This is mainly a book of interviews with some of the top designers, inventors and creators of technology from the recent past, focusing mainly on computers, software and electronics. It covers the design of internet services, handheld devices (like the palmpilot and cell phones), toys, computer games, and many related technologies. Really cool stuff, and not too dry (especially for something that looks like a college textbook). I'm very surprised at the low price too (currently less than $30 on Amazon).

In the works for ten years, Kings Way documents the early days of graffiti in Melbourne as never collected in one place before. Kings Way refers both to a prominent stretch of road in Melbourne, Australia, and to a "when we were kings" reminiscence of youthful, though not necessarily more innocent, days. Jam-packed with stunning images of works which have long since been buffed, covered, faded away or buildings demolished. Wonderful photographs you might not see anywhere else. A must have for the natives, and of interest to graffitophiles everywhere.

This is the most important book I've ever read. Cradle to Cradle is a philosophy that calls for humanity to start building and living in a way that is both modern and comfortable and green and ecological. There is no waste in nature, why is there in the way we do things? We should be looking to mimic nature's processes in how we build and do everything. I don't want to live in a cave and this book lays out the future for how we can all do that.
