Description

Label taped to the video case reads: "Few dispute that interaction between computers and users requires thoughtful attention. Is this a communication craft or idiosycracies of personal taste? Placebo effects and fundamental principles are difficult to distinguish. This talk recounts some of the inadequately controlled and poorly validated experiments by the speaker which lend insights into the current state of the art."
