Human-Computer Interaction: Ergonomics and User Interfaces - Vol. 1

By Hans-Jörg Bullinger; Jürgen Ziegler | Go to book overview
For practical HCI applications of neuronal resonance, we can cite systems designed for the former generation of mini computers: APL and MUMPS. These were renowned as the most powerful programming systems ever created by man. In terms of the OODA loop metaphor, they yielded maximum power for observation, orientation, decision, and action on the base of careful fine-tuning of the software to the rather minimal technology that was available then: Winchester hard disk, 8025 CRT alphanumeric display, and 32-64 K RAM Processor. Since APL and MUMPS were virtual machine codes disguised as programming languages (and hand-crafted in native assembler), they offered extremely powerful command facilities with a few quick key-strokes (which the programmer, of course, had to memorize). The HCI "secret" of these systems was the neuronal resonance circuit thus created, of tight-fitting incremental loops of code-viewing, understanding, modifying, testing, and evaluating, the DP equivalence of the OODA loop. The later generation of mouse-driven HCI (WIMP) has sacrificed speed of interaction in favor of mass market access, leaving the power users out in the cold. This is financially understandeable, but it poses an insidious cul-de-sac for human symbolic evolution that could be possible with multi media symbol systems. Some avenues for further development are probed in (Goppold).
