On Paper
November/December 2007 (vol. 24 no. 6)
pp. 24-25
Paper as a tool for expressing our thoughts offers superb usability and versatility, letting us mix various notations and multiple levels of abstraction. This makes it easier to pour out our thoughts on it. In contrast to software tools, paper doesn't provide feedback and won't interrupt us with various notifications. This gives us a chance to meditate on our design in a state of flow.
Index Terms:
Paper, usability, interruptions, flow
