Now, two decades later after the release of the first edition, Brenda Laurel has revised and revamped her classic Computers as Theatre, reflecting all that's happened, all she's learned, and emerging technologies that will transform human-computer interaction yet again. Beginning with a clear analysis of classical drama theory, Laurel explores new territory through the lens of dramatic structure and purpose. This new edition, directed to a far wider audience, is written more simply and elegantly, packed with new examples, and replete with exciting and important new ideas. It is utterly unique among books on interface/interaction design.
