Book Em, Dan-O

I might as well come clean. I just signed a book deal with New Riders to write a book on interaction design. It's tentatively called Designing for Interaction: Creating Smart Applications and Clever Devices, and the fates willing, it will be published next summer.

The book is meant for new(er) practitioners and students, although I'm making sure to throw in some high-end stuff for experienced designers as well. The book is drawing heavily on the curriculum I devised for the class I taught last year and the year before, and will cover not only web and software, but delve into devices and services as well. I think it will be the most holistic look at interaction design, issuing from a design perspective, on the bookshelves. At least, I hope it will be. Wish me luck writing it!

How do you go about gathering that?

This is the appeal of intelligent agents. ...
