Well I have got tired of waiting for Jakob to start a blog version of useit.com so I decided to build it myself.
I have organised the posts into five different categories one of which (Spoof or Joke etc.) contains content that is not from articles or links posted on useit.com
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What did you base the design on?
A. I got the inspiration from one of Jakob's jumpers (see blog for picture).
Q. Why have you done it?
A. It presents links to useit,com content using a 'modern' blog format that allows users to comment on alertbox articles directly. Think of it as an attemp to take the "fuddy duddy" out of Jakob Nielsen.
Q. Have you 'doctored' any of the content?
A. No, all content and links taken from useit,com are unaltered. Any spoof or humerous items are clearly categorised as such.
Q. What does Jakob think?
A. No idea, but I hope he sees the value in it.
Q. Have you followed weblog usability best practice?
A. Why nor read the Weblog Usabilty alertbox article and see how many design mistakes I have made.
Q. Why have you put google ads on the blog?
A. Any income from these ads will be used to offset hosting costs, but based on past experience I expect to be paying the bills out of my own pocket,
Q. Will this blog be kept up to date?
Q. Where can I buy a t-shirt?
A. You can't. Why not buy one from OK/Cancel instead.
Q. How can I help?
A. Publicise the blog, subscribe to the feed and comment on the items.
I hope you enjoy my latest usability experiment.
