One Laptop Per Child at last a human computer interface?
Pentagram has some first ideas about how the user interface of the laptop
in "One Laptop Per Child" will work.
- Home: where you "set preferences like color"
- Friends: where you "chat with their friends"
- Neighborhood: where you "locate other users and gather around an activity"
- Activity: where you "focus on a project at hand"
Apart from the ghastly mistake of making "Home" a place to tinker with the machine, surely a hangover from machine focused OSs, this is great! An interface that is human-oriented first, and then task-oriented, how much better than Windows, Mac, name your poison...
