Computers as Theatre, 2nd Ed (Pearson)
Sunday, 30 March 2014

Brenda Laurel's Computers as Theatre (1991) revolutionized the field of human-computer interaction, offering ideas that inspired generations of interface and interaction designers. Her insight was that effective interface design, like effective drama, must engage the user directly in an experience involving both thought and emotion. This revamped edition explores new territory through the lens of dramatic structure and purpose.
