Best Interaction Design Blogs 2006

Another year, another new (or at least new to me) crop of great blogs about or related to interaction design. Here again, in no particular order, the best interaction design blogs of the year:

  • Pulse Laser has come on strong at the end of the end of the year with a set of really excellent essays.
  • For the second year in a row, Functioning Form consistently delivers great discussions, conference notes, and stuff to chew on.
  • History of The Button looks at what's behind the interaction designer's best friend, the button. Always an engaging and a surprisingly deep read at something we now take for granted.
  • Small Surfaces gets the nod as my favorite mobile device blog of the year (Little Springs Design is a close second). Sure, it's mostly just a collection of links about devices, but they are good links.
  • Jensen Harris' Office UI Blog for the past year should be required reading for all interaction designers. It's really about how to make good design decisions.
  • Design Observer continues to awe.
  • Wisdump tells it like it is, deflating the web-hype machine.
  • Josh Porter's Bokardo has really come into its own this year, with provocative topics and good discussions.
  • The frogblog has come out swinging with its debut recently. I have high hopes for it to sustain.
  • I really don't want to like Creating Passionate Users, but I do.
  • And for sheer readability and laugh-out-loud comedy, Valleywag has to finish off this list. With Nick Douglas gone, it's probably not going to be as mean or snarky anymore, which was, really, it's sole appeal. It was fun(ny) while it lasted though.

So there you have it, folks. Happy reading!
