World Usability Day 2006

“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”.

The Triangle User Experience Group is putting together a World Usability Day 2006 event in RTP on November 14th, 2006. We’re looking for students/faculty/staff that are interested in participating in the event. There will be a keynote speaker and a usability interactionary contest.

Keynote:
Graem Boddy, VP Info Services Business Applications
Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC

When: November 14th, 2006 from 6PM to 9PM
Where: GlaxoSmithKline’s Ruvane Auditorium

 

We’ll be working with different teams in a contest of sorts solving a usability challenge. The event last year pitted NC State, Chapell Hill and industry participants in a usability interactionary.
