Computer technology provides us with constant opportunities to try new things, and with each new device we get a peek at what the future has in store. But the history of that technology is just as important as the future. The Interface Experience: Forty Years of Personal Computing tells the story of that past through tactile and interactive displays that will stimulate new questions about how we interact with and use computers. There will also be two related symposia on April 6 and 7 related to interface experience and digital interpretation in museums.
