Here are some books that I've found useful over the years on the three

annotated.

of interaction design.* Indianapolis, IN: Wiley.

guide to user requirements methods, tools, and techniques.*

The Continuing Saga of OLPC

It's been a weird week for the One Laptop Per Child project, and I'm
surprised we didn't discuss it here.

First was the news that:

Nicholas Negroponte’s One Laptop Per Child organization admitted
defeat in its effort to sell millions of open-source computers in
Asia, Africa and Latin America by joining with Microsoft to load
Windows XP onto its green and white laptops.

Microsoft's "mind reading" patent

Heres a scary thought!

Microsoft is applying for a patent to monitor user's brain waves in
order to determine the effectiveness of user interfaces. Could this be
the end of user testing as we know it?

Here is the url at BoingBoing where I read about it:

Large scale survey: SUS, NPS or ...?

I have an opportunity to survery a very large number of users before the release of a new version in January. I was considering using the net promoter survey but then read some articles that were critical of NPS. The release is on a particular page of a web app and will grab the users while using that specific tool. I've used SUS in the past but typically with internal users that are not critical enough.
