The folks at Bolt|Peters just published chapter 1 of their upcoming book “Remote Research”.  Judging from the first chapter, it’s going to be a great book (I’m a huge fan of remote testing for websites so may be a bit biassed).  They discuss when and why to do remote research, and when not to.  They even give a fair amount of space to an anti-remote-testing advocate — and in the first chapter no less!  Some good tidbits here to help those new to remote UX testing better understand the whole field.  Check it out – chapter 1 is online now for free.


What is this blog anyway?

If you’re new to website usability, it can be a bit daunting.  What does it mean to make a site “usable”?  For who?  For what?  What does it matter?  And how do we tell whether it’s usable or not?  Those are the questions this blog is dedicated to.  That leaves it pretty wide-open, but that’s the nature of the field.  Happy designing!
