Blog on the Microsoft Office user interface

Jensen Harries from the Microsoft users experience team has started a blog on the Office user interface.

" In this blog, I hope to write a lot about my thoughts about the ins and outs of defining and designing the user experience of Office. I'll be writing frequently about the future of Office but also sometimes the past. And there may be times I find it irresistible to delve into general user interface issues or even (gasp) software issues in general."

Weblog for Post-PC Interfaces

You might be interested in the weblog that I set up at to discuss post-PC interfaces.

The goal of Nooface is to promote unconventional thinking about truly next-generation user interfaces that are designed for new types of users and computing devices, and go beyond the WIMP (Windows, Icons, Menus, Pointing Device) method that most current interfaces are based on.

Some of the topics discussed include visual user interfaces; web sensing and visualization; information appliance interfaces; user interface innovation; next generation I/O peripherals; search interfaces; alternative web architectures; gesture input; 3D browsers; virtual worlds; game interfaces; wearable computing; data visualization; command-line interfaces; and UI development

Check it out if you're interested!
