I'm sure my publications are nothing to write home about but I have really enjoyed writing and talking about Desire Lines recently - even Don Norman told me he hadn't heard of the terminology for them, though of course he was familiar with the idea.
Some of the other stuff, like my PhD, might be useful for people getting started in researching the area - perhaps some useful leads there, particularly in the domain of prototyping, and chauffeured prototyping, of which very little seems to have been written.
Hope this is of some use!
