Indexing / storing usability study results

I am working in an organization that is focused on doing quick,
lightweight usability research, especially once the work has a good
foundation: bringing a design into a coffee shop, for example,
running 5 quick (15 minute) studies, making changes, showing 3 more
people the next day, etc.

In this model, I've seen things get revised and re-tested 10 or more

At the same time, there is a formal research organization that would
like to have all the results organized and indexed so they can find
them later.

Card Sorting with Nested Groups

We're working on the next release of our card sorting analysis software, SynCaps V3 and need a few sites to try out the new 'nested groups' feature on face-to-face, paper-based projects. This allows the kind of hierarchical sorting that many want to do but that few tools support, for example:

Vegetables (group level 1)
-Root Vegetables (group level 2)
--Potatoes (group level 3)
---White Potatoes (item)
---Sweet Potatoes (item)

and so on.

Interaction08 Selling Out Soon and Other News

Just an update on Interaction08.

We had a tremendous response to our early bird registration and have
sold nearly 3/4 of the registrations for Interaction08. There are only
a limited number of available registrations left. We're reserving a
dozen or so for students and the remaining 50 for professionals. We
expect these to be sold quickly and the conference to sell out by mid-
January *at the latest*.

New guy in corner over there smells funny... Toomuch cologne, probably.

"Question 1-
If a user doesn't notice a missing feature, is it really missing?"

Also, does the fact that it's missing classify as a feature?

How to define heuristics specific to a system ?



We are currently working on complex systems unificating various interfaces. Various modules (physical and interfaces) are interacting together, like in a train, car or plane.

Each module thus have its own goals and dedicated tasks.

To reproduce our analysis and communicate comparable results we would like to develop heuristics grids specific to each sub system, based on Nielsen's and Bastien&Scapin's ones, but including task oriented criterias.

Chicago needs a local IxDA group... join us!

Are there others in the Chicagoland area that are interested in attending
local IxDA gatherings and events? Your interest could range from planning
events, speaking at an event, attending... or just feeling happy, knowing
there is a local group here.

If any of the above fit you, please email me off-list so I can gauge
interest. Also let me know if there are any topics of particular interest
that you haven't found a local forum for as of yet.

many thanks,

Interaction '10 Conference iPhone app. survey Requesting your input

Hey everyone,

My name is Austin Brown. I am a Senior Industrial Design Student at
Savannah College of Art & Design, and minoring in Interaction Design.

My group and I are working on creating an iPhone app for the
Interaction '10 Conference as a project in our Interactive Product
Design class. We want the conference and the app to be all about you
all, so we need your input.

The survey is meant to be a breeze, so don't think to hard about it,
and definitely don't work too hard on it. We're not looking for
statistically meaningful results so much as opnions, feelings, ideas,
