The IT List: What You Missed This Week on InformIT [2/28/14]

Computers as Theatre

1. Meet the Author: Brenda Laurel has worked in interactive media since 1976 as a designer, researcher, writer, and teacher. Computers as Theatre revolutionized the field of human-computer interaction, offering ideas that inspired generations of interface and interaction designers-and continue to inspire them. If you’re in the area, join Brenda on Monday, March 3rd, at Bookshop Santa Cruz for a book discussion, audience Q&A and signing.

Brenda is also a featured speaker at the upcoming SXSW Interaction Design & the Performing Arts panel discussion on March 9th, followed by a book signing on March 10th in Ballroom D at the Austin Convention Center.
