User involvement is king. The web is built on participation. Mojiti’s ability to add comments to video content has impressed me. I must say that got completely carried away and wanted to know more about one of the articles used in Mike Wesch’s video “The Machine is us/using us” that I noted yesterday. Luckily somebody […]
Must see Michael Wesch of Kansas University released a brilliant video on the possibilities of the web. It’s a fantastic intro and eyeopener, and it makes me wonder, if it would be relevant to use at work with clients to give a short intro (because it contains a lot of things I may take for […]
How to let ordinary people make wise predictions for you better than experts. The Wisdom of Crowds by James Surowiecki digs into that phrase and gives excellent examples of how it can be used on the web. I wrote about it earlier after hearing James Surowiecki on MP3 from SxSW.

Carson Workshops Summit happened yesterday in London. I was not in London but have previously attended Ryan Carson’s excellent workshops.
I’m really looking forward to this message that Ryan put on the webpage:
The summit was a smash success. Thank you to everyone who came along. We thought it’d be fun to give away all the podcasts of the talks, for those who couldn’t make it. Enjoy!
I like Wordpress Dashboard. The name suggests that it’s an overview of whats relevant to your blog. What’s happening. What’s popular. Who comments. What important updates are available. The Dashboard should work like in a car. The most important and relevant information should be visible at a glance. Lets have a brief look at the dashboard.
I suggest you only take a brief look to judge for your self whether you think the main objectives of the Dashboard page are met.
Click on the screenshot above for and look for 5 seconds only. Then ask yourself what you could remember from the page. Yup you just tried a 5 second usability test.

It’s important to use video clips to make your points, as I argued earlier. In usability, video clips document research and guidelines. Ironically, video clips are hard to find (if available at all). However, one exception shines in the dark night of publically available usability videos.
Jakob Nielsen posted an article today in his ‘alertbox’ column about video on the net, where you can actually see a videoclip. He presented the video clip at lasth week’s “Usability Dagene 2005”. It reminds me that usability testing videos are an eye-opener, and can be used for making strong points to also at management level. Let your end-users make their points. They know better than you.
