Kort biografi
Norman is a very private human being (hence no birthplace, for example), but this piece, written by him, is excellent.

I've retired four times: first from the University of California, San Diego (where I was founder and chair of the department of Cognitive Science); then from Northwestern University, where I was a professor of Computer Science and Design, co-directing the MMM dual degree program between the School of Engineering and the Kellogg School of Management, a program that gave students both an MBA and engineering degree, with the focus on design and operation; the third retirement was as a trustee of the Institute of Design, Illinois Institute of technology (Chicago); and the fourth was as an active member of my company, the Nielsen Norman group (I have been given the title of "emeritus" at all four places.) And, as the opening sentence of this biography suggests, I'm back at UC San Diego, but I have given word that I am stepping down from the Directorship of the Design Lab at the end of the 2019-2020 Academic year, so starting July 1, 2020, i can concentrate upon my projects and writing. (A new book? Wait and see.)



Donald Norman’s work opens the mind to a vast space of science that is still nascent at the boundary of Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science and the intangibles of Design and Computer Human Interaction.

Most of all the refreshing perspective is how much room there is for different kinds of methodology in study, which could be as simple as qualitative research from reporting one’s sensation to quantitative studies worked around specific questions.

And most importantly the perspective is a humanist view of technological development and its challenges. When we make technology we transform culture and this should maintain the human at its center rather than be a bureaucratic system.… (mer)

Serious waste of my time. I did love The Design of Everyday Things though, but generally do not like these practical books. They always seem to have a few pages of useful information that are then expanded to fill the book. Emotional Design does not have exactly the same problem. Instead, there is only one line of information, then a lot of small useless stories and ideas. In some ways that is better, but either way is not worth my time.

Here is what you need to know:
There are three levels of design: visceral (objective look), behavioral (touch and performance), and reflective (thoughts or feelings).… (mer)

This was written in a decade before authors learned how to write stimulating non-fiction.

Very thorough and well formulated. Guy is an expert in his field, and he manages to keep it interesting despite some of the dry subject matter
