tiny moment of procrastination in the midst of frantic indesigning and editing.
inspired by this guy and his FUIs - : fantasy user interfaces
it would be interesting to take a general non-techie poll of people who don't know computers very well about which of these FUIs or hacking stories seem most realistic and accurate. data about how something is perceived, etc. user interfaces are sort of grammar-like in that you learn the language of buttons and function hierarchy and etc; it strikes me that understanding the predilections of a userbase (even though it maybe influenced by fictional user interfaces in a movie) is partially necessary to understanding the set of mental rules or vocabularies that users will carry themselves to you when they sit in front of your designed screen;
