real world screen resolution stats

Since it is a frequently asked question on most web and interaction
design lists, I thought I would forward this from a friend of mine
who is pretty good at research and analysis....

Here's the results of part of review on screen sizes he did for a
client, sanitized for thier protection, but most likely still pretty

Audience size about 20 Million Users, 90 Million Visits

Reporting period covers January 2007-May 2007

Collaborative HTML Prototyping

I looking for a way of collaborating with a team on producing HTML prototypes.

I'm after something fairly lightweight.

I'd like there to be only a single instance of the prototype (i.e. no
emailing it to eachother).

Anyone got any advice?

statistical significance


To be honest, unless you've got just two audience segments (personas) then
I'd suggest you look at whether or not you can talk to all of them in some
form. Barring that, I'd suggest around 10 users per estimated persona. As a
minimum, I'd be aiming at 24-30.

Each one, teach one slides and notes posted

While the video is in the works, you can find my Interactions 09 keynote
slides here:


The presentation is rather mysterious without the notes, which are an
approximation of what I said. Look below the image at the tab labeled
"Notes on slide 1," hiding behind the "Comments" tab.

IxDA SF Presents When UX Research is Evil

*When UX Research is Evil*
Usually when you design and conduct a user research study, you're focused on
keeping the methods sound, recruiting good users, and asking the right
questions, which is already a tall order. Unfortunately, no matter how well
you conduct your studies, your methods have little to do with how the
research ultimately gets used.

Event NYCUPA 10/28 - Recipe for Success: A Case Study for Usability Testing Techniques


It has become clear that the blurb for our 10/28 event did not adequately
convey the thrust of the presentation.

While the subject matter involves the presidential election and the
usability of candidate sites, the main subject of the presentation is how to
plan, run, and present findings for a usability test.

The presentation will be of interest to those who are:

● Considering doing some usability testing on their own and want a
step-by-step walkthrough of the process
● Doing usability testing and want to learn a bit more about best practices
● Considering con

Q: Soliciting client testimonials

I'm doing a website overhaul (rebranding, everything) and I would like
to incorporate client testimonials.

I don't want to ghost write these things but I know that many people
hate to write and wouldn't know what to say, even if they wanted to
say something nice, so I'm thinking about giving them some questions
to nudge them in the right direction.
