A Paradigm Case of Theory in Software Design
Fitts' law is described and discussed as an example of use of theory in human-computer interaction design. The dichotomy between academic theory and applied theory is rejected and replaced by a radical pragmatic notion of theories as design artefacts. Different roles of theory in design are discussed.
