World Usability Day 2006- 11.13.06

Happy World Usability Day! This post really goes out as a reminder, excuse, and/or swift kick in the butt to go promote the importance of usability, user centered design, and especially usability testing with REAL USERS (*hint *hint *nudge *nudge to some of my colleagues).

What is this day about? Well, to quote their about page: “Making Life Easy!” “Why doesn’t this work right? What am I supposed to do with this now?” World Usability Day, November 14, 2006, is for everyone who’s ever asked these questions. This Earth Day style event, focused on raising awareness and visibility of usability engineering and user centered design, is currently being organized by volunteers and local event coordinators from around the world. Whether a usability professional or just an enthusiastic (or frustrated) user, each participant is making a contribution to “making life easy”.

So go to their page, show your support by joining the charter, participate in local events, and really, please, help make the world a more usable place.
