&759/ Presentations (Revisited): Touch Research

| View Comments | No TrackBacks

These days two years ago I teached a communication design class - studying the rising touch and multi-touch human computer interaction paradigm.

The iPhone was released in Germany but not in Switzerland in late 2007. No-one in our small group had access to it back then. After five student presentations, we proceeded with a little bit of history.

13 faces:

- Paul Otlet,
- Vannevar Bush,
- J.C.R. Licklider,
- Ted Nelson,
- Doug Engelbart,
- Richard Saul Wurman,
- Don Norman,
- Bill Atkinson,
- Tim Berners-Lee,
- Jakob Nielsen,
- Marc Andreessen,
- Eric J. Bina,
- Jim Clark, and

a spectrum of historical topics:

- information science, 1934,
- the memex machine, 1930's,
- wholly new forms of encyclopedias with a mesh of associative trails, 1934,
- networked computer with graphical user interfaces, 1960,
- hypertext and hypermedia, 1963,
- the first computer mouse, 1963,
- the mother of all demos, 1968,
- the grandfather of the internet, 4 computers in 1969,
- information architecture, 1976,
- the trouble with UNIX, 1981,
- user-centered design, 1986,
- HyperCard, 1987,
- the World Wide Web, 1991,
- Web usability, 1994,
- NCSA Mosaic and Netscape Navigator, 1994, as well as

some basic cognitive psychology and HCI stuff.
