Remote Testing > Has anyone tried any of these options?

I am researching remote testing for some usability studies we'd like to run at work and came across a couple different options that look promising. Has anyone tried these services?

Countrywise understanding of IxD

Hello everyone,

In this forum we often discuss local context of IxD and its associations
across cultures.
However from industry point of view , i would like to hear views about how
jobs related to interaction design are spread across the world.
Design labs are not present in every country and most products are designed
in the developed nations, while developing nations are just coping up with
new designs as per their complexities.

What are the best cities across the world to work as an interaction
Which are the most lucrative locations across the world to get good pay

websites for people who use excel

I am working on an Intranet/product catalog application and many users begin
with an Excel spreadsheet and need to get this data into the online
interface. Has anyone worked on or know of websites which allow copying and
pasting of Excel data, hopefully "both ways" (eg, paste data into the web
interface, or paste data from the web interface into Excel)? My client
actually does have a functioning tool that does this, and almost no one uses
it, I suspect because the users are intimidated by the completely blank
screen that they start with.

Re: [IxDA] Depicting Your Personas

Though I love the fun family orientated use of the Simpsons, in certain industries, this use of character would be appalling when using it to present a type of persona due to a lack of needed sophistication or contrasting of the company's brand, say the client were to be Vogue. I do think an illustration that sat closer to realism would be more effective as a starting point in depicting a persona visually.

Architects and environmental designers often use silhouettes which are very typical and avoids possible stereotyping.

Silicon Valley First Friday is now Second Friday

Hi folks,

Once again the first Friday of the month lands on a holiday weekend. So I
think it's better to permanently move our user experience designer happy
hour to the second Friday of the month. Less alliterative, but more

Stay tuned for details about a get-together on the 9th. In the meantime, I'm
looking for suggestions about other places we can get together in the
Sunnyvale/Mountain View, as well as San Jose area, so we can rotate
locations. If you've got a spot that you think would be good, let me know.

Incredibly Ticked Off

Tonight I responded to a discussion board post seeking advice on getting a job in UX. In context, it was nice and normal and addressed the concerns in the original post. However, for some reason, my post went to an email list completely without context. Shortly after, I received an email from a CEO believing I was directing my response to her, which would have been completely inappropriate, and out of context - downright rude.

CHANGES in your definition, use or perception of UX/UE design this year?

Hello List Members,

Have your notions of what user experience design (UXD) is, or should
be, evolved this year? How are thought leaders--Norman, Garrett,
Morville et al--defining UXD / UED differently than, say, a year or
two ago, that you've heard (blogs, conferences, etc.)?

To be precise, I'm not requesting for a definition of UXD. These I'm
quite familiar with.
