Ten years of Cognitive Dimensions

The Special CDs issue of JVLC has been published. :-)

I have a paper co-authored in it with Thomas Green, Ann Blanford, Chris Roast and Steven Clarke.

Full text available here.


In it, I argue for the seperation of cognitive and information structural concerns in the Cognitive Dimensions framework, and use the resultant 'refactored' dimension set to bring new clarity to some complex cognitive problems.

The work has directly influenced my current work on Cognitive modelling of Security that I'm currently writing up. I believe that it offers a powerful view, esp. for modelling security critical user interfaces.

Thanks to my co-authors and Alan Blackwell.
