World Usability Day, 2009


I am very excited about this year’s World Usability Day (WUD) topic:  Sustainability. For those of you not familiar with WUD, it is a day for usability practitioners to spread the world and teach their communities what they do and why it is important. I am working with my local usability group (Gateway CHI) to organize another wonderful, interactive day. I will post updates as our plans become more solidified. Until then, I hope any UCD people out there who have not gotten involved will do so. Mark your calenders: Thursday, November 12th.

Until then, check out their website and take the Global Transport Challenge.gtc-logo
