What is the Best Practice for Usability Testing aRegistration Process.

Hi Paul,

You have different scenarios, or you have different designs? I'm not
sure how you would test for validity of a scenario with usability
testing -- in that case it sounds like you'd want to do contextual work
to see if you find your scenarios 'in the wild.' But if what you really
mean is that you have three slightly different designs, then you're
right, you shouldn't test all three designs with the same individual.
What this means, of course, is tripling the number of tests you need to
do. For that reason, I probably wouldn't take the time to test all

Agile & UCD (was Thoughts on Alan Cooper's Keynote)

Hi Ambrose:

That is wonderful! We need many more software architects and
developers with passion for UX.

I think that what you are saying is on-target. I would only add a
couple of points:

1. Some aspects of product development are, and probably always will
be, "waterfall." I was trying to make that point in another thread.
For example, you have fund --> design/build -->release in almost any
business. There are Ux elements in all of them. So I think that we
will always be dealing with some form of hybrid models with waterfall
elements and agile elements.

XSRF - cross-site request forgery (was: Keyurbsorathia wants to share Favorites with you)

(Maybe not the right list... but good to know)
It is actually a minor case of XSRF attack (cross-site request forgery).

The link above is a google search but it might have been transfer X
amount of money to Y. That's of course will work If your bank is
stupid enough (some are) to allow *significant and predictable*
action by HTTP request, and you're happen to be logged into your bank
account (in a different tab maybe?).

This attack is "statistic", but an attacker can send endless number
of emails.

advice on usability testing for complex sites

Can anyone recommend methods for performing usability tests on large,
complex applications with lots of conceptual dependencies?

We're running into issues in our design of a test. We want to test
"Section B" of our application, but "Section B" doesn't make a lot of
sense unless you've already been exposed to "Section A". The trouble is,
Section A is pretty complicated in itself. They're definitely too big to
test together in a single 60 minute test.

What to do, what to do...!
