I’ve started a list of essays and articles that I feel are important touchstones and reference points for interaction designers. Over 50 in all, arranged chronologically:

Please feel free to suggest others.

Happy reading!

I added all the HTML available articles into an RSS feed accessible folder here. Wish Instaper allowed PDFs to be added & that there was a better publishing mechanism. Whe I get home I'll create a single PDF of all files (on iPad now) & publish somewhere as a edu reader (w/ Dan's permission): http://www.instapaper.com/rss/271268/6f23kXhvIeqZzohCBnLONzGjHjw

Thanks for sharing the link.

Btw, what do you people think of the 'link' colors at http://www.kickerstudio.com/ (some reddish brown with dark grey background).

My eyes dislike it. Maybe if Dan can give a thought about it, I think it'll be better to change the color. (just an opinion)

Yes, the red links on the gray background are causing a chromosteropsis effect.  Makes your eyes wiggle.

I would recommend Saul Greenberg's and Bill Buxton's article "Usabilty Evaluation Considered Harmful (Some of the Time)" available at
http://www.billbuxton.com/usabilityHarmful.pdf (2008)
