Usability of Usability

Usability is an important aspect to be looked at for making any system achieve its ROI and to give its users an ‘experience’ that will help foster a better culture in the organization. As the ultimate target of any system is to establish change management and to promote organizational innovation via modifying the behaviour or culture of the people in the organization, it becomes imperative that aspects of usability are engrained into the goals and processes of the organization.

Web 2.0 UX Benchmark: Please Help

Usable Products Company is exploring doing a US-based quantitative user
experience benchmark of Web 2.0 properties. This benchmark will be limited
to three sites in the same category for its first release. Our goal is to
inform our community and to at least break even on the investment.
Benchmarks provide invaluable information to designers and marketers, and
a point of comparison to determine usability improvements.

TV production room interaction design?

Having spent many years as both an operator and layout designer of
control booths, I would advise getting to know each of the roles. Be
careful to observe how much light they have to work with under
working conditions, what workarounds they currently have in place and
especially, the moments when they need more than two hands. Find out
the best and worst stories: what causes a train wreck and what
careful choreography they pride themselves on when the time pressure
is on.

NYC Thanks Andrew Green, Avenue A | Razorfish, and Event Attendees

NYC IxDA would like to thank everyone who came out last night to hear
the ever-humorous-but-always-polite Andrew Green give a great talk
about sculpture, convenience, creativity, context, cats, why the
napkin sketch isn't enough, and What's in Yr Gut -- complete with dual-
screen projection!

Kudos to Mary-Lynne Williams and Avenue A | Razorfish for being a
superb host.
