Interview with Peter Morville

Liebe THS-Leser, das hier ist ein nettes, kurzes Interview mit Peter Morville: Interview with Peter Morville about his new book “Search Patterns”.

The terms "faceted navigation" and "parametric search" are often used interchangeably, but for the sake of comparison I find it valuable to define interfaces that require the simultaneous, up-front specification of all search parameters as exemplars of parametric search. Like the Boolean queries of yore, this forces users to formulate and execute a search strategy without guidance or feedback. Sliders and pull-downs are easier than ANDs and ORs, but syntax is only part of the problem.
