Computer as a theatre, Brenda Laurel cover II edition [Biblioteca Amnesia]

Appena avrò tempo ne scriverò , di questo libro. Per il momento vi basti sapere che la prima edizione di questo libro risale al 1993 e che la cultura della user experience e interaction design sarebbero (state) molto diverse se anche questa visione fosse rimasta all’interno del dibattito culturale e professionale del settore.
