It was supposed to be the next big thing but it fizzled out like MMS
An important thing to note is you would have to use the speakerphone
to do video calls (unless you're always on BT headset or handsfree,
which is not true for an overwhelming majority of people) and this
compromises privacy in a big way…no one wants people nearby snooping
in on their conversations.
Would love to hear your thoughts on why it hasn't taken off yet?
I will make a post about the responses I receive and will publish them

As in, if you can accurately predict what's going to happen next in an
interaction, it's because the action you're taking is understandable, clear,
logical, makes you feel confident, etc. If you can accurately predict what's
next, the interaction has high usability. If you can't accurately predict
what's next, the interaction has low usability.
Can anyone recommend coursework, books or other resources to help managers
understand how to handle IxD / usability professionals and manage the user
experience? (Not so much the methodology, but direct guidance on resource
planning, logistics, evangelizing usability, budget, performance metrics,
My company is looking into renting out a lab to perform usability testing in
the New York City Area. We need the following:

While I feel quite confident with HTML and CSS, it seems to take a bit of
pain to use Dreamweaver for wireframing, perhaps because it tends to force
you into detail too early, when you are still on the "vision" stage of the
process, and feel like a WYSIWYG tool would be more appropriate.
On the other hand, wireframing in the WYSIWYG way entirely without HTML also
feels wrong, because first, the target medium is Web so it's closer to the
reality to think in HTML, and second, HTML is a powerful and expressive
language, and quite a mature one.
I am currently doing some research before I make a suggestion for how this
information should be displayed. Of the known formats I know that using
parenthesis () around the number or using the minus sign in front of the
number can be used. I have also seen both of these variations with the
numbers displaying in red.
I was just looking to get some feedback or possible resources that might
have more information or research that backs it one way or the other so I
can be more informed with this decision. Thank you for your feedback and
time in advance.

Our Marketing dep't wants me to do "usability testing" at an upcoming user conference -- a gathering of our software users. The conference's purpose: for users to improve their software skills and to learn about upcoming product advancements.
I proposed a card sort, because it's low-tech, relatively quick, and needs little setup. This meets y needs (I have something I need sorted), but does not meet the conference goals; it won't help users improve their skills or learn about upcoming product advancements. So it got lots of thumbs down.
Our client has recently merged with another large organization. Their
online/interactive presence has been compiled and there are issues with the
functionality of this large website. That is where you come in... we are
