Interaction Design, Description
(Interaction Design being more relevant than ever, I wanted to share this with the design community.)

From every item we touch, to every device with which we interact, there is Interaction Design.
With every utensil we use, and with every website we see and hear, we interact.
Every building we enter. Every car we drive. Even the food, we eat; the drinks we drink… there is interaction.
Our whole world, real and virtual, is interaction.
The tiniest flaws can become the most cumbersome obstacles, over time.
And, the greatest functions, to which we’ve grown accustom, can be taken away, unfortunately, with a so-called, “Upgrade”.
Ultimate care and consideration should be taken, when designing… anything.
There is beauty in design, beyond that which we see, visually; but, how an interaction makes us feel; how it effects us, emotionally.
It’s our responsibility, to help shape our surrounding world, through Interaction Design.
It can be shaped into a more functional, and more beautiful world, simultaneously.
We are what we sense. Our interactions form who we are. With what we interact, we also become.
Rounded edges, instead of sharp uncomfortable pointy things.
Clarity over confusion.
Simple, seamless… more pleasant immersions, over harsh and jarring experiences.
Helpful and considerate design, over dismissive and obstructive flow.
Interaction Design helps ensure proper communication between knowledge, and function.
It’s not just about selling more products, through design. It’s about creating something of lasting-value; interweaving helpful longevity.
…taking what is learned, and applying it to the future.
And, the future… is Interaction Design.
