CSE 271: User Interface Design: Social and Technical Issues

1. The class notes are not a substitute for the assigned readings. They are often critical commentaries meant to supplement or correct the readings, and sometimes they just reflect what I felt like writing at the time, or what was easy to copy in from somewhere else, rather than what is most important. Also, please note that the lectures and the readings beyond the text are at least as important as the text itself.

2. Readings and homework for a given week will normally be posted on the class website on Thursday of the week before; posted material is subject to change until Saturday, but any changes after Friday will be minimal.

3. Some of you may be unable read assigned gziped postscript papers, probably due to using MS Explorer without gunzip and/or ghostview; the TA for an early version of CSE 171 wrote a short note on this problem, as part of his discussion website for that course. You will probably have no trouble with unix machines, and you will certainly have no trouble with the CSE unix machines on campus.

  1. Due 4 April:Although theoretically this material should have been read before the first class meeting, it is of course acceptable to have read it before the second meeting.
  2. Due 11 April: 
  3. Due 18 April:
