The tyranny of the mouseclick: Part game, part digital anthropology, part ergonomic research project, the Institute for Interactive Research's site dontclick.it challenges you to navigate a web page using techniques other than clicking. Wend your way through the page replacing clicks with gestures or a timer, and learn about the history of computer interfaces, see the more than 7,000 "mouse recordings" of cursor movement, and answer the question, "Do you miss the click?" If a new clickless standard can be agreed upon, I wonder how it'll ease cases of carpal tunnel (he typed, with a twinge in his wrist).
