but do also look at the critique of 'interactivity' in Andrew Barry (2001) Political Machines (Athlone) - Ch 6

Hi Christian,

Below is a selected bib I have. It's not complete. It's missing work by
Eric Bucy and a few others. A key article, below, is McMillan's
"Exploring models of interactivity" in the Handbook of New Media. It's
an excellent overview and touches on the user-to-sytem/machine
interactivity you're interested in and provides relevant cites.

Good luck.

I am distinguishing three forms of interactivity: human to human, human
mediated to human and human to machine. Whereas for the first two forms
I can refer to literature about computer mediated and face to face
communication I still need some "food" for human to machine interaction,
which is not only dealing with design issues but with implications of
the increasing employment of human to machine interactions in work
places. Can anybody help with a good article, book?

Thank you
Christian Haack
