Suggest mac software for video recording in usability lab

Hi,

I'm working as a research assistant at a Swedish university and we're currently rebuilding our user experience lab. One of the problems we see with the lab is that it's way too complicated to do testing.

IxDA Event and Tutorial in Hamburg

I'm giving a talk on the psychology of nerdiness and its impact on user-centred design in Hamburg on 4 November (evening), followed by a full day tutorial on Agile User Experience & UCD on the 5th. The common topic for both is that there are many factors that affect our ability to sell user experience and user-centred design into technology-driven teams and organisations, one of them being the psychological make-up of technologists themselves.

Full details of the Hamburg IxDA talk are below.

Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] Capitalization in username

thanks all for the replies...

verdict (of sorts):

  • don't enforce capitalization on sign in
  • (in display) maintain original capitalization used during sign up

Although Berners-Lee did include this notion in his [Axioms of Web architecture][0], the Robustness Principle is a lot older than HTML.

It's commonly credited to [Jon Postel's][1] 1980 RFC on the Transmission Control Protocol: [RFC 761][2].

I think the best policy is the one originally prescribed for browsers in dealing with HTML: Be generous in what you accept; be strict in what you emit.

That is, the site should consistently capitalize (or not) names, but allow people to enter them in a case-insensitive manner.
