"… This week Robert Hoekman, Jr. joins us to discuss Design Frameworks. Drawn loosely from the idea of coding frameworks that software developers use to more efficiently build software, design frameworks are an aid to assembling a design."

Interaction design is often focused at the interface between a person and a system in the form of a series of request-response actions. But interaction design can be positioned at the strategic level when the interaction designer looks at the transition between interactions & touchpoints; and the aggregate effect of these interactions on the overall service experience.
Sonic interaction designers create sounds that convey information and feedback to us, such as the distinctive tapping of your touch screen keypad. Karmen Franinovic explains the challenges of this kind of design, and discusses her particular research: sonic interaction design for physical rehabilitation, such as for people re-learning how to walk.
A fascinating discussion with Bill Verplank about the early days of of interaction design.
His discussion of the three paradigms of interaction design (computer as intelligence/brain, computer as person/life, computer as agent) is superb.
