Ben Shneiderman
professor of computer science at the University of Maryland in College Park, founding director of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory, and joint inventor of Nassi-Shneiderman diagrams

I was inspired to take up science by the challenge of understanding a small part of our amazing world, with the goal of making life better for many.

Ben Shneiderman is author of Leonardo’s Laptop: Human Needs and the New Computing Technologies (buy this book from Amazon (UK) or Amazon (USA)), and coauthor of Designing the User Interface: Strategies for Effective Human-Computer Interaction (buy this book from Amazon (UK) or Amazon (USA)).
