3. Development: Nobody Knows How You Made it, and Nobody Cares

Nobody Cares About Your Great Engineering

Again, it's worth noting that a great engineer does not necessarily
make a great prototyper. "Correct" or "reusable" solutions are often
not what we look for in quick throwaway code.

Humor for IA and Usability People

For a brief break during the workday, I once posted some humor and satire about the field that was well received. Then the site ended and for awhile the humorous stuff was unavailable. I apologize for this outage. In response to ongoing requests by visitors, the humor has been restored and moved to http://www.filippsapienza.com/blog1/2010/02/02/humorous-writing/

Morae - video cameras

How many video camera streams can you run into morae at one time?

I'd like to run two at the same time, as I'd like to tape a mobile phone with one camera and then tape users with another camera. I

Any ideas? Unfortunately I do not have a copy of Morae at this time and Camtasia crashes when I try to record using two cameras at the same time.

Newspaper company looking for a UX mentor

I work for the newspaper division of E.W. Scripps, and - due to an increased interest in user experience by the execs - our small UX team is tasked with defining the term as it relates to our business as well as defining a strategy for applying UX principles to existing products and new projects.

Indexing / storing usability study results

I am working in an organization that is focused on doing quick,
lightweight usability research, especially once the work has a good
foundation: bringing a design into a coffee shop, for example,
running 5 quick (15 minute) studies, making changes, showing 3 more
people the next day, etc.

In this model, I've seen things get revised and re-tested 10 or more

At the same time, there is a formal research organization that would
like to have all the results organized and indexed so they can find
them later.
