Jonas Lowgren a prof of IxD @ Malmo posted this article on aesthetics
in IxD earlier this month.
Check it out! I like his issues, but hoped he would have gone deeper
into actually describing qualities of interaction aesthetics more.

David,

Thanks for noticing. And yes, I would like to go deeper. Much deeper.

The context for that particular piece is as follows: I wrote it as a
position statement for an upcoming workshop on "The study of visual
aesthetics in HCI". Hence the superficial treatment of multiple
issues, each of which deserving much more attention. I simply wanted
to introduce myself and my position to the other workshop
participants. I trust that the discussions at the workshop will go
deeper and eventually result in more thorough writings.

Regards,
Jonas Löwgren

This is good - especially read in light of the papers by Bertlesen and
most recently Bardzel's survey paper presented at the most recent CHI.
I'm going to reread this now on the train.
