things related to unsupported/untethered cycling, nomadic lifestyles, or
testing products where the rubber-hits-the-road, let's get together and
share notes.

Analyzing usability testing notes

Hello folks!

I'm trying to find a better way to do usability test analysis.

My current approach is: after i finish a usability study, with 8 or 10
users, and collected my own and all observers' notes, I usually read all
notes and then immediately write down the issues I feel area appearing
more often (assuming my brain will remember issues that are repeated in
many notes more than issues than appear only once).

Now, how do YOU approach analyzing those notes? Reading and re-writing
by heart? Putting all notes on a wall and eye-balling?

Web Semiotics - Signs of the parameters of Web

Semiotics as defined in wikipedia

"Semiotics, also called semiotic studies or semiology, is the study
of sign processes (semiosis), or signification and communication,
signs and symbols, both individually and grouped into sign systems.
It includes the study of how meaning is constructed and

I always wondered how much is it relevant to the webspace. Many a
times there is a very strong mismatch between the brands portrayal
and the web interface. This i feel has a strong point that
communicates with the user perception.

What is a Landing Page?

> I'm curious what your feelings are regarding what a landing page is

I think Wikipedia's somehow right when defining a "landing page",

for now.)

Professional development; employer expectations (was RE: book recommendation for everyone)

Hi everyone,

Wendy laid out really well, her perspective on education and information
gathering. I don't actually consider those things to be related, but they
are both cost centers for any organization and all costs need to be budgeted

I work for an organization that is finally seeing value (mainly due to
competitive forces) in UX investments.

Anyone use NVivo for qualitative data analysis?

I'm wondering if anyone has had experience working with NVivo to analize and extract data related to qualitative research of user experiences. My company is in the process of forming a dedicated UX research department and I'm curious if this is something we should really be planning for or if traditional methods and techniques are still preferred over software that appears to "automate" many of the nuances of traditional methods. If you can sight examples of projects where you've found this helpful, that would be great!
