Does anyone know of any publicly available user video resource?
I'm looking to include a clip of an animated user using a poorly designed
application in a presentation I'm hoping to give to my business.

Any assistance will be gratefully received.

Regards

Kevin

Not certain exactly what your requirements are. But, iStockPhoto.com
is a great resource for cheap ($.50) images, and they have animated
users frustrated with computers.

As far as video, I don't know. If you just want a few seconds you
could download, out app (VisualMark) for Mac OS X, and take a few
seconds of someone using a computer.

HTH,

You'll have to dig for a specific clip, but try archive.org,
particularly the "Computer Chronicles" archive.

Kevin,

Though I'm mindful of the fact that you're in the UK and downloading
video may be something of a chore, I'd suggest you give The Open Video
Project (
http://www.open-video.org/) a look.

There's a lot there but you could start by riffling through the
Collections (especially, the stuff from the Uni of Maryland ... I mean,
really, anything with Ben Shneiderman thumbprint on it would be a
winner.

Cheers,

Hi, Kevin.

I don't know what your specific needs are, but there's a video segment
that's been floating around the web for awile, portraying a worker in a
cubicle who becomes frustrated and irate with his computer and winds up
smashing the machine.

Probably not "real" and certainly exaggerated, but it does demonstrate
the popular perception that computers are frustrating to use. If you
can afford a slightly comical note in the presentation, it might be
worth considering.
