Contest-based user research?

Hi all,

I'm a UX research intern at TechSmith (makers of Camtasia, SnagIt, and Jing), and I've been working on more research on screencast viewers and consumers and their experiences, as opposed to just on our users, who generally create the content.

Reading Ahead - Design Competition @ Core77

We're psyched to be working with Core77 on a design competition that
is about taking our Reading Ahead project (user research findings
about the reading experience and associated opportunities - ) into developing
concepts for possible future products, services, and more. I think
it's really important for our fields to have artifacts, examples,
experiences, etc.

Where to find user feedback/reviews?

Hi all,

I'm wanted to do some poking around to find reviews/user feedback on
Verizon's new capability to link up multiple accounts under one
username/id (now you have a username for landline, wireless, .net
mail etc.). Any ideas of the best places to look online for this type
of research??

User Research: Three user groups, five hours. What would you do?

I am being given the opportunity to visit a client of our software to
do some user research. I have never been on site with any of our
clients before.

At this client we have 3 user groups two who do different tasks and
one super user who can do everything plus config.

I only have five maybe six hours depending on flights being on time

We have full access to both groups all day but I would like to send
them some sort of schedule so they are not just sitting around
waiting on us.

1. Understand the users and how they use the software.
2. Uncover any pain points.

Online Questionnaire Best Practices (Anyone remember that Interactions article?)

Howdy all -

for the life of me track it down. It had a some great items such as
starting with easy to answer questions and to not include a middle,
neutral point (i.e.
