Example text

Forces: 0 0 0 0 A user that explores a complex artefact, or tries many state-changing operations, may literally get lost. A user may forget where they were, if they stop using the artefact while they’re in the middle of something and don’t get back to it for a while. If the user gets into a space or a state that they don’t want to be in, they will want to get out of it in a safe and predictable way. The user is more likely to explore an artefact if they are assured that they can easily get out of an undesired state or space; that assurance engenders a feeling of security.

1994, p. 721. HCI patterns need to model time as well as space. They also point out, however, that interaction design is quite different from architecture in one important way: time is an essential component. Interaction is much more dynamic, and context and system of forces often change during the course of interaction. Nevertheless, a trio of interaction design courses in their curriculum is based successfully on the pattern concept. Students do exercises such as finding interaction designs with and without the "quality without a name", defining patterns based on their observations, and transforming interface guidelines into patterns.

This pattern, and the ones which follow it, give the neighborhd and its points of focus, their identity.
