  • our first volume within the Interface Critique book series: Olia Lialina, Turing Complete User. Resisting Alienation in Human Computer Interaction. Quote taken from one of the chapters: “So, apart from contradicting Don Norman’s call and saying that computers of the future should be visible, I’d like to suggest finally disconnecting the term “affordance” from Norman’s interpretation, to disconnect affordance from experience, from the ability to perceive (as in Gibson), and from experience design needs; to see affordances as options for possibilities of action, and to insist on the general-purpose computer’s affordance to become anything if you are given the option to program it; to perceive opportunities and risks of a world that is not limited to mechanical age laws and artefacts.”
