Engineers Won't Design Next-Gen Systems

[from Tomalak's Realm] TechWeb reports that Don Norman spoke about the design of next generation systems at the Embedded Processors Forum and suggested to the Engineers in the audience that they will not be the ones to do the design. Instead, future systems will be designed "by psychologists and social scientists working in combination with engineers and technologists". Norman pointed to the success of the Palm platform to support his thesis that ease of use drives acceptance in the consumer market.
