Hello Everyone. While at MSFT I was working on NUI principles to
utilize for all the products moving forward. This got me into a lot
of really high level thought processes. Based on all of the writing
for my book I have been doing, and since I left Microsoft a month or
so ago, I submit a recommendation for a new acronym. This could be
used to describe Modern User Interface Design.

OCGM, pronounced like Occam['s Razor]

Objects, Containers, Gestures, Manipulations

No need to rely on windows, menus, etc. I posted about it on my blog
as well.

Also very interesting that it relates to a great principle.
