Note For This Week

I’m running a round of usability testing this entire week.

Which means I’m going to be in a lab, focusing on people doing stuff with software.

Which means if your comment goes in the moderation queue, it will be likely late afternoon before I can get around to approving comments.

That is, of course, for those of you whose comments get approved pro forma.  Those of you on suspension will still need to do what you were asked to do to unblock your comments.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

  1. When you get to the part where a team member says “We don’t need to worry about that, nobody would be dumb enough to . . . ” just give me a call and I’ll help you demonstrate exactly how dumb end-users can be.

  2. DMA, I’ve heard it put this way: “The fallacy of designing something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of a complete fool.”

  3. UXer rule #22: End users aren’t stupid. Software is.

    UXer rule #45: Foolproof is a myth.

  4. AI axiom: you never really appreciate an imbecile until you try to build your own from scratch.
