“The systems that best exemplify direct manipulation all give the qualitative feeling that one is directly engaged with control of the objects — not with the programs, not with the computer, but with the semantic objects of our goals and intentions.”

-Hutchins, Hollan, and Norman, “Direct Manipulation Interfaces” (1985)
