Most lab setups I've seen involve a 'face cam' to capture user

What's your job title?

Hi, I'm new to the forum but not new to usability!

I want to know what your jobs titles are so I can start to think what mine should be...

My role in my job has been evolving recently and I will now be in charge of making sure all our software is developed with 'User centred design' at its heart.

NextD Journal

I've been getting the NextD Journal email notifications via email for some
months now. Once in a while, I'll go read an article or two. But they tend
