[EVENT] IxDA Helsinki January meetup today, Thu 29th at 18:00

Hello all,

The second IxDA Helsinki meetup will be held tomorrow, thursday Jan
29th 18:00 at the familiar Ravintola Nolla. This time we’ll hook up in
the other end of the restaurant for some more space and projection
capabilities.
At the event Janne Korhonen from Seos will present a point of view on
sustainable design and it’s value. The overall feel of the evening
will still be loose, informal & relaxed.

Last time we had more than 35 people stopping by, looking forward to
top that this time.

Telling Interactive Stories - At NYCUPA Event

I'm curious what everyone has to say about last night event at Bloomberg
with Andrew DeVigal. Was everyone aware of this stories on the The New
York Times?

Do you think newspapers readers understand how and what to click in
order to view and comprehend the stories as they are told?

I told my story here http://user-experience.iterating.net/

A Kid Friendly (8-12 y/o) Demonstration of Why are Some Computer Programs so Frustrating

Hello,

I am working with the Virginia Tech student chapter of the Human Factors and
Ergonomics Society to design and execute a hands-on demonstration that
compliments Dr. Kelleher's response to the question - "Why are some computer
programs so frustrating?" This is in support of Kids Tech University
(http://kidstechuniversity.vbi.vt.edu/program.php), an educational
initiative that exposes kids to science and technology careers. Any
thoughts?

(was R.E.D.) Experience

I hope you don't mind Jonas, but I thought your framing of experience
was a worthy topic all on its own...

The notion of experience and domain expertise is something that
hiring managers are almost always interested in. It leverages years
of work and countless failures without enduring the cost of either.
Using the classic T-shape metaphor, experience can be deep, but can
also be wide and diverse. Both have their advantages. As consultant
and outside design firm for most of my career, I am particularly fond
of the wide.

Selenium (or similar) for Usability Testing?

Hi all,

Does anyone have any experience of using Selenium for testing
(http://seleniumhq.org/)? I have been asked to research it's potential
for UX testing. I have used it briefly as a developer, but it seems to
be more suited to testing the functionality of a site rather than from a
usability point of view.

In fact, can any automated tools really test usability?

Thanks,

Nik
