This site was sent to me from a friend (thanks Mike), it is an experiment in human.computer.interaction where a gentleman by the name of Alex Frank has taken away all the mousedown functionality of a site and built an amazing online experience. He has an interesting theory of filling mouse movement between clicks, that he calls "dead space". My friend said this is a "glimpse into the future (of interface design)" and I started thinking about what happens in that "dead space".
While I'm in my dead space, I am processing my next decision. I can imagine rolling over the "order" button and it processes. Do you know how many Todd McFarland Toys I would own? Now I am far from a scientist, but I believe there is a filing system in the human brain that lays down an invisible bread crumb every time a click or decision is made. Countless times, I find myself retracing my tracks based on clicks. This would be great for the shipping industry.
Anyway, my hats off to you Alex! Thoughts like this move the media industry from now to new.
