An interactive computer environment is one which attempts to facilitate the interplay between man and machine in pursuit of a goal defined by man. Presumably, to be effective, this environment should allow the calculating speed, precision, and structured logical/iterative skill of the machine to serve the conceptual, intuitive, highly associative, and contexturally sensitive attributes of human mental function in the solution of problems. Too often the match is obtuse, the goals vague, and the result frustration. Much emphasis ought to be placed on the a priori specific problem oriented knowledge, gained through experience, which the man brings to the machine and wishes to share with it in a versatile but structured way.
