so what is interaction design anyway?

Here's how some people describe this thing we call Interaction Design: 

“Information design is the skeleton; visual design is the flesh, and interaction design is the muscle that joins the two.” 

Valerie Casey

“No one cares about what you think, unless you do what you think. No one cares what you do, unless you think about what you do.”  

Jack Schulze, Berg London
