Paul Dourish MIT Press, December 2001, ISBN 0-262-04196-0. Most textbooks in HCI and CSCW do not offer a coherent and over–arching understanding of social and technological issues. Where the Action Is is the best book in HCI for years, and everyone who reads this journal should read it. I hope it sells in truckloads.
Teo said: A bit too heavy on jargon and light on substance. In this book, Paul Dourish addresses the philosophical bases of human-computer interaction. He looks at how what he calls "embodied interaction"-an a Computer science as an engineering discipline has been spectacularly successful. Yet it is also a philosophical enterprise in the way it represents the world and creates and manipulates models of reality, people, and action. Dourish presents a model for a new approach to the science of interaction, that he calls Embodied Interaction. The most interesting is the different perspectives brought, mainly the phenomenological ones, to design the framework. The problem, and that's why the book became so difficult to read, is that Dourish tried to work a model that would serve any kind of interaction.
Where the Action Is is a book by Paul Dourish slated for publication by MIT Press in October 2001. It's topic is "embodied interaction", a novel approach to the design of user interfaces and our interactive experience of computation. The idea of Embodied Interaction reflects a number of recent trends that have emerged in the area of Human-Computer Interaction.
Where the Action Is provides intellectual foundations for the emerging movement that makes people, and not machines, central to the process of design. With a clarity and thoughtfulness that make hard ideas easy, Paul Dourish's book will only increase in importance as the social nature of computing becomes evident to a new generation of technologists. Philip E. Agre, Department of Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles (Endorsement). Paul Dourish has now done them for me. All my future publications will have to show consistency with this book, show they are clearly outside the area covered by this book, or show the book is wrong. The last alternative is most unlikely. I think I can show my work, based on Darwinism and ontology, complies with the first option.
Paul Dourish is Chancellor's Professor of Informatics in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Irvine. He is the author of Where the Action Is: The Foundations of Embodied Interaction and coauthor of Divining a Digital Future: Mess and Mythology in Ubiquitous Computing, both published by the MIT Press. Human-computer interaction meets philosophical treatments of embodiment. The result: a foundational study of living and acting in a wired world. And a rare achievement too: a readable and engaging book which manages to be both sensible and groundbreaking at the same time. Department of Philosophy, University of Edinburgh. A revolution in design and the role of computer science is upon us: Where the Action Is describes the way.
