This is the third of three annual special issues on Design. In an editorial in the first of the three issues, I explained how the annual came about: I gatecrashed a lunchtime meeting of the Visual Interaction Design group, and was impressed with what they were doing. I heard them complain that they were underrepresented in the community, so I offered them space if they had something to fill it with, and Elizabeth Dykstra-Erickson stepped forward to organize it.
It has clearly been a worthwhile experiment. Furthermore, since then, I would venture to say, visual interaction design has become more visible, not only in these pages, but also at the conferences, and in the community.
Thank you Elizabeth for such great work!
This issue also features the start of a new column called Fast Forward edited by Aaron Marcus. Most readers will know Aaron for articles he has written in the past for interactions, and the great work he does in the field. It is a pleasure to welcome Aaron as column editor.
