Encyclopedia of interaction design

Mads Soegaard has started an open-content, peer-reviewed encyclopedia covering terms from the disciplines of Interaction Design, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Design, Human Factors, Usability, Information Architecture, and related fields.

The encyclopedia is not as comprehensive as the Usability Glossary (yet) but terms are explained in more detail.
