A Day in the LIfe seeks to monitor a selection of users as they use the internet for a day to evaluate a number of assumptions. Number of sites visited, use of back button, etc. It seems like the population that will be attracted to participate in A Day in the Life may be a [...]

Some interesting thoughts on information visualization over on peterme.com yesterday. Loads of great links and examples that I intend to follow up on later.
So I’m reading emptybottle.org and I see a reference to a musical version of Dune. Now, here’s the thing, I’m a huge Dune fan, so for a moment I was both horrified and intrigued by the idea. An idea that was leant a certain amount of credence because Wil Wheaton was also supposed to be [...]
A lot of people are pointing at This Story about usability testing. Just bookmarking it so I can remember to check it out when my attention span is longer.
