Summer... and the Science of User Interface Design

Summer has arrived! While I hope to continue to post at least three times a week, I plan to write shorter posts. These will include links to interesting articles that I find online—with less analysis. I hope that those of you who have come to read my blog on a regular basis—and there are a handful of you out there—will continue to find the blog an enjoyable stop on your journey across the web.

For now, please enjoy this article about user interface design from the Fast Code Design blog (via Brainiac).  The author examines why software and operating system designers lay out user options in the way that they do. He asks, for example, why, on computer dialogue boxes, is the 'OK' button usually to the right of the 'Cancel' button. His analysis peers into the psychology of user interface design.
