@yaxu yeah, it's this: https://omscs.gatech.edu/cs-6750-human-computer-interaction (started the online masters there). i like it well enough but i don't think i'm super passionate about hci? (could be that i'm not great at reading in general and it's def not the way I learn anymore). but it's def been reshaping the way I think about tech and interfaces (and now hci pops in my head whenever I see all these crazy gestural-controlled holograms in sci-fi stuff). but actually most of the readings aren't bad, but some just make my eyes glaze over... I like the concept of distributed cognition I've learned from the class? About how cognition isn't just in the mind but arises through our interactions with different artifacts, it feels like our interactions with various bits of tech are like a "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" sorta thing which is kinda fascinating to think about
@mrufrufin I've been reading around hci/interaction design/cscw recently as well although not part of a course. Finding some aspects are definitely more interesting than others! Some parts of the field seem to be all about social science, others problem-solving engineering. I probably enjoy bits overlapping with psychology the most.
