usability & language: inconsistent terms

Hi All,

I am an all-round interaction designer and I am to busy to deal the language & usability part while improving big large existing products on small usability features (quickwins).

But I find it also rather important, but also so time consuming and I am not specialized in that kind of stuff. I am the only interaction designer and there is a documentalist making tutorials. He bumps very often against hazy language constructions. He is quite busy also.

What would you do?

Usability of Usability

Usability is an important aspect to be looked at for making any system achieve its ROI and to give its users an ‘experience’ that will help foster a better culture in the organization. As the ultimate target of any system is to establish change management and to promote organizational innovation via modifying the behaviour or culture of the people in the organization, it becomes imperative that aspects of usability are engrained into the goals and processes of the organization.

Web 2.0 UX Benchmark: Please Help

Usable Products Company is exploring doing a US-based quantitative user
experience benchmark of Web 2.0 properties. This benchmark will be limited
to three sites in the same category for its first release. Our goal is to
inform our community and to at least break even on the investment.
Benchmarks provide invaluable information to designers and marketers, and
a point of comparison to determine usability improvements.

NYC IxDA would like to thank everyone who came out last night to hear
the ever-humorous-but-always-polite Andrew Green give a great talk
about sculpture, convenience, creativity, context, cats, why the
napkin sketch isn't enough, and What's in Yr Gut -- complete with dual-
screen projection!

Kudos to Mary-Lynne Williams and Avenue A | Razorfish for being a
superb host.

Alert Fatigue

Dear Professors
Hello, and thanks for any help ahead of time.
I am a Medical Informatics student at OHSU and right now I am in a research
methods class at my institution: Geisinger.
For My project I wanted to investigate Alert Fatigue, suffering, myself,
from the condition.
So far most of what I can document comes from high-risk industries like
nuclear power, aerospace and the military. There is very little data in the med
informatics literature.
As I begin the topic though, I can find very little nomenclature defined
Is there taxonomy of alerts?
