projects. I think it will fill an important gap – there is some material

My book will be one of the first published by Rosenfeld Media
(, a new publishing house focused on producing
short and practical books on user experience design. RM will be applying
UX methods to determine what books to publish and how its books should be

I’d love to hear from you about your experiences conducting card sorts and
have set up a survey to help collect this. It is short – 10 questions –
and should take no more than 10 minutes:

I’m really looking forward to working on the book, and hope you’ll
consider participating by sharing your suggestions. Send comments and
ideas via the site or to me at cardsorting at
