Software Studies

Michael Murtaugh

The MIT Press

This chapter emphasizes the concept and categories of interaction using different user interfaces in the computer field. It furthermore focuses on an experimental computer, TX-2, and also examines the works, contributions, and research of several computer science theorists. The themes and perspectives of this interaction concept—liveness, plasticity and accretion, interruption, and incompleteness—play a central role in the computational fields and are covered in the subsequent discussion.

Keywords:   interaction, user interfaces, TX-2 computer machine, liveness, plasticity, accretion, interruption, incompleteness
