Bill Verplank
Steve Baty has published a short interview with Bill Verplank on Johnny Holland.

Bill Verplank is – together with Bill Moggridge – at the origin of the term “interaction design” and one of the speakers at Interaction 11. I got to meet Bill many times at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea, where he acted as academic advisor and was always impressed by his wisdom.

“Interaction design in the 21st century will be a challenge because almost everything (and everybody) we interact with will have computers in it or on it. Services and systems will be autonomous and only ask for guidance (think of automated cars and guideways); tools will be augmented and powerful; even the most mundane artifact might have far-flung connections and consequences; media will be interactive and engaging and we will all become fashion designers.”
