2010 is now here and I'm attempting to kickstart my research after the hiatus of the relocation. As this is my final MPhil year I will now need to formalise my PhD research and set it's parametres. To horrendously misuse a quote from MacBeth I need to now "Screw my research position to the sticking post" (sorry Bill).
In the fallow time between the last post and this I have been reading (not enough) and processing (not enough) that information. One book I have read and now re-reading is by Interaction Designer Jon Kolko. His book "Thoughts on Interaction Design" in it's introduction makes a value statement that an intrinsic value of IxD is in "the creation of a framework in which to experience these designs." (Kolko, 2010, p7) This value statement is to be seen in the context of IxDesigners as "shapers of behavior" (ibid).
