Technology for User Research

I'm in the process of looking at the past, present and future of technology used for conducting user research/usability analysis of products and digital interfaces. I'd appreciate any publicly shareable examples of innovative tools that you may have used/built to conduct user research. I may include certain examples for a NYC Usability Professionals Association presentation scheduled for October.

Are you building RIA's?

I'm in search of individuals and studios that have been designing and/or
building RIA's. I'm particularly interested in speaking to parties who have
been working with Macromedia Flash and Flex.

I'm in the process of building the user experience discipline for Macromedia
Professional Services and I want to establish outsourcing relationships with
top talent. Please contact me directly if you think that you or your company
fits the bill.

Names are Important (was Wood gatherers...)

Good grief! I mean, really?!?

We are not cave people. We don't (only ;) ) communicate with grunts and
chest beating. We have words. Words are one of the most valuable things we
have as humans. They have real meaning. They build up language, which is
at the heart of everything else we build and often at the heart of our
relationships and just generally how we relate to that which is outside

Discussing naming is inextricably intertwined with discussing the underlying
concepts, which are the important bits and what people get worked up over.
Titles are names.

UCD Process Diagram [updated]

Thanks to lots of really excellent feedback, I've made quite a few revisions
to the original document. The updated version is here:


Just a quick summary of the feedback/changes:

The main shift I made was in response to Peter Boersma who shared his
presentation on how he came up with a UX process to fit into their software
development process (RUP/UCD mix). His key was to show how he came about his
and show you how to do it yourself.

When designing "apps" for gesture recognition, what is most appropriate to use? A UML User Flows or a Service Design Blueprint?

Any insight or suggestions are helpful!

IxDA SF Presents When UX Research is Evil

*When UX Research is Evil*
Usually when you design and conduct a user research study, you're focused on
keeping the methods sound, recruiting good users, and asking the right
questions, which is already a tall order. Unfortunately, no matter how well
you conduct your studies, your methods have little to do with how the
research ultimately gets used.

I'm posting this to the ixda list specifically because I'm hoping to
attract a few more people from the design community :-).
