After reading Andrews’ article “Space, place and interface”, I thought of comparing ‘navigating the web’ with ‘shopping for information.’ We can have everything from doing window shopping (leisurely surfing the web) to grocery shopping (information to function in our daily lives), and christmas shopping (special projects e.g. vacation).
My question then is, why are we trying so hard to find THE perfect interface. I don’t think there will be such thing since too much depends on individual differences and purposes.
On a different note…
What are the things that frustrate us the most when we search/navigate/interact with the web?
