I’m about half way through a very cool book at the moment. It’s by Kathy Sierra who is now one of my internet heroes.
You can watch the book trailer above. But you should really go to Amazon and order it. Or download it.
It’s about User Interface Design. Or UX. This is a kind of side interest of mine. UX is what instructional design should’ve been.
Think of it as rules-for-how-to-design-cool-stuff-by-people-who-actually-make-money-designing-cool-stuff. Generally, not academics or educationalists.
Actual designers. Coders. And so on.
There’s a link on her blog. Check it out if you want to know how to design cool stuff.
