New encyclopedia on Interactive Design, Usability and User Experience

Dear friends of interaction-design.org,

We are proud to introduce a new type of top-quality and free encyclopedia dealing with Interactive Design, Usability, and User Experience.

The new encyclopedia features video interviews which we flew around the world and shot at different universities.

you going to services, the application pulls those services in to your
workflow via a natural language command line.
He's created a nice video demoing the app

I wonder what people's thoughts are on (power-user orientated?)
