User Interfaces Are About Look and Feel

I stumbled upon a page written by Bill Buxton, when I was Googling for ‘Who invented touch screen?’, and I thought it would be great to share it here: Multi-Touch Systems that I Have Known and Loved.

User interfaces are about look and feel. -Bill Buxton

From Wikipedia: “Bill Buxton’s scientific contributions include applying Fitts’ law to human-computer interaction and the invention and analysis of the marking menu (together with Gordon Kurtenbach). He pioneered multi-touch interfaces and music composition tools in the late 1970s, while working in the Dynamics Graphics Project at the University of Toronto. Recently, he is also known for his book Sketching User Experiences: Getting the Design Right and the Right Design (Morgan Kaufmann, 2007)”
