[PLUG] Webinar on Recruiting Users for Research w/Dana Chisnell

Hello everyone,

I don't often promote our events on this list (figuring you're sick of
hearing from me as it is), but because there's been a nice thread about
paying testing participants, I thought I'd mention today's UIE Virtual

feedback from your users during the design process</snark>, you might be

Mobile Search Models

Hi all,

I've been seriously thinking a lot about mobile search models and am
looking to crowd source interesting examples to check out.

Also, if there are any articles / papers you would recommend on the

At the moment, it is my view to simplify this as much as possible.
I'm considering in the case that a user has multiple search criteria
that they input one and build on that query rather than complex
advanced searches.

A Study on how End User's perceive change

Hey guys,
I am planning a study which aims to answer how end user's perceive change.
'Change' here could be upgrading of a software ( e.g. MS word 2003 to MS
word 2007), OS, switching between similar applications (e.g. MS Expression
Web to Dreamweaver) etc. I am currently trying to find similar studies from
backgrounds such as Behavioral Psych, Computer Science, HCI etc.

Has anyone conducted similar studies? Could anyone point me to any
studies/books/papers that could be related to this?

MS-HCI @ Georgia Tech

Design Conscious ... Touch & Feel

But Evan Williams, Dell Australia's general manager of consumer sales
and marketing, said today people were more conscious about the design
