Origin of cognetics
- The term cognetics was used independently by Jef Raskin and Charles Kreitzberg. Raskin used the term cognetics in his book The Humane Interface (Addison-Wesley, 2000) to mean "the ergonomics of the mind." According to Raskin, "Cognetics brings interface design out of the mystic realm of guruism, transforming it into an engineering discipline with a rigorous theoretical framework".
- The term cognetics was coined and trademarked by Charles Kreitzberg in 1982 when he started Cognetics Corporation, one of the first user experience design companies.
