In an interesting video Bret Victor gives some insight to what could be the future. This could be a BIG break-through. The current model of interaction can be changed to something that supports creativity better.
Guided by the principle of ”Creators need immidiate connection” – to see the results from their work immediately – he shows ways to follow that principle in programming and in other fields and compares this to other previous inventions.
The talk is called ”Inventing on Principle” and can be found here. The fun begins after a couple of minutes. In the end he has some really interesting thoughts.
