AB testing non-public low-fi prototypes

Hi All

Just wondering if anyone has conducted AB testing on prototypes? As we're reviewing low-fi prototypes they can't be linked to the client domain.

My personal preference is to do one-to-one interviews but I need to review this as an option.

I'm aware of Ethnio but the client does not want to take this approach of recruiting directly from the site.

Yes, most of us are after better products from a usability and visual design perspective. However, don't you think that all designs should be evaluated based on unique, pre-identified success metrics?

***Certainly, this makes sense.

For example, an interactive design submitted to Comm Arts is probably going to have success metrics skewed toward innovation in the visual design realm. In that realm, text on gifs *could* be evaluated as good design if extensibility, download time, etc.

iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind

I have recently come across a book written by Gary Small called "iBrain:
Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind".
The book is about the technologies that have become part of our daily
lives are changing the way we think. According to a local newspaper the
book tells us that ggogle and youtube actually makes us dumber.

Key concepts of the book:
*The brain’s plasticity—its ability to change in response to stimuli from
the environment—is well known.

Mindset and SmartSort

Does anyone know where I can find information concerning the apparent
discontinuation of Yahoo's Mindset and SmartSort features?

We've referenced them in the past concerning the use of sliders,
but SmartSort appears to have switched to radio buttons (http://
tinyurl.com/6fyypk) and Mindset (http://mindset.research.yahoo.com/)
appears to be down.

IA Cocktail Hour Amsterdam --> UX Cocktail Hours Amsterdam


[apologies if you see this message more than once, and congrats on being in the right places ;-)]

For those interested in meeting fellow user experience practitioners when traveling in Europe (and obviously those that live or work close to Amsterdam) I'd like to point your attention to the following announcement.

Since 2001 I have been organizing IA Cocktail Hours in Amsterdam, about 6 a year. These events have always been frequented by a mix of people with and without the job title Information Architect, and with or without a strong focus on IA in their work.
