Jim Schaefer asks about Theater as an adjunct in computer issues. Brenda
Laurel, an OHIO State theater PhD, wrote >Computers as Theatre< a few years
ago, attempting to apply Aristotle to Interfacing. The book is dreadfully
sophmoric, with almost no reference to contemporary performance theory
(probably more relevant to Laurel's purpose), but provides at least the
beginning of a dialogue. Laurel is a highly succesful computer game designer
who is a major figure in the Virtual Reality sphere.

I believe Brenda Laurel has been heavily involved in using dramatic models as
a  design  basis  for  user  interfaces in  computer  software.  She has
authored  a  number of  papers dealing  with this  theme, and  one  book  is
notable: _The Computer as Theater_. (Sorry for the incomplete citation as my
copy is not at hand.)
