surfacing scattered bits of information

I'm working on a health-related project in which users will see information
about a set of conditions/diseases. For each condition, different kinds of
information is provided, including preventive information. The preventive
info itself will consist of a set of recommendations, each consisting of a
header and then a paragraph or more of explanatory text. The recommendations
themselves are grouped into different categories (clinically proven,
promising, early diagnosis, etc.).

Now, I want to enable the user to select any one recommendation and add it
to an action tracker elsewhere.

HCI and modern art

I'd like to share some words of Manovich and take some impressions. What do
you guys think about that?


Daniel Ribeiro

"It is time that we treat the people who have articulated fundamental ideas
of human-computer interaction as the major modern artists. Not only did they
invented new ways to represent any data (and thus, by default, all data
which has to do with 'culture', i.e. the human experience in the world and
the symbolic representation of this experience) but they have also radically
redefined our interactions with all of old culture.
