Skeuomorphic Analogues

Apple is designing Skeuomorphic applications to help people more intuitively grasp their operating environment.

“Skeuomorphism, as it applies to computer software, is the use of ornamental design elements that represent familiar objects in the digital realm. The technique was first implemented by software designers to help ease users into the unfamiliar world of computing. For example, digital folders are represented by folder icons and contacts lists can be displayed in a virtual agenda.”

The Orlando Doctrine is using similar skeuomorphism, in designing the analogues between physical and information security, we are attempting to develop constructs that will better help our readers to understand the rational arguments both for and against the use of force in network applications. In some cases, while the logical and physical world are not directly applicable to one another, the analogy is such that a parallel can be drawn that is accessible to both technical and lay persons. In short, we are trying to equate the physical world with its digital analogue. While argument by analogy is suspect, it seems reasonable to assume that we may be able to glean some truths that will not solve the problem, but help us to frame issues, and work collaboratively with you to better refine these arguments, logically, soundly, and competently.

Please consider this an open forum for debate. We will constantly strive to incorporate your opinions into the body of knowledge on the subject as we progress.
