Yet, this isn’t search per se in the sense that you describe. This is searching for a place to book, so would it conform to the same classic conventions of a site search? I personally think not.

comment best way to design data query builder
A little confused. Are the users creating database tables through the GUI, or just surfacing data that is already in a database, or both?

comment Relationship between anthropomorphism and NUI?
Please could you post the articles preaching designers to avoid anthropomorphism? I am stunned to hear this as in Interaction Design, beyond human-computer interaction, it says “furnishing technologies with personalities and other human-like attributes makes them more enjoyable and fun to interact with. They can also motivate people to carry out various activities, such as learning.” — I tend to agree, you only have to look at virtual assistants to see the value.

The author may well have done. If they did, it was very subtle and was not the takeaway that I got. You could always ask him directly @Stephenturbek twitter.com/Stephenturbek

It is just how it works by default. No need for a reference. When you select an option, the option is shown within the input area.

comment How do I limit the number of options a user may choose in a list?
This will take up slightly less screen real estate than the 2 select boxes I shown in my first example but you will need to also consider the following: 1). This is only good for limited amount of options, the example of select movies would be too long a list. This is only good for high recall 2). You will need a JavaScript fallback, which will likely be the 2 select boxes option 3). Possibility of confusing users as this is not usual behaviour for select options (being able to use it multiple times), and the control itself normally displays answer 4). You will need to disable after 2 choices
