FYI, Rich Gold was an artist and designer that was part of
the original ubiquitous computing team at PARC. He also
helped establish the PARC Artist in Residence program.
I just found out that a book he had been working on before
his untimely passing away is online (and his wife is also
looking for a publisher, if any of you know of one).
Rich has some really good insights about the nature of
art, science, design, and engineering; intelligent
houses; and how the act of reading has changed over time.
