It's World Usability Day today, and the UPA asks you to take the Global Transport Challenge to
- Measure your everyday transportation usage
- Monitor your personal carbon travel footprint and compare
yourself to others around the world
- Minimize your energy usage through alternative transportation choices, carbon offsets, and simple travel changes thereby maximizing the impact on our world.
Go visit the WUD 2008 page and take the challenge today!
There has been some coverage (albeit very little, compared to last year) on the World Usability Day event in Hamburg[GP:Zuhause] (all in German, I'm afraid):
… and a nice photo of me during my talk
November 8 saw this year's worldwide No. 1 usability event – the World Usability Day, conceived by the international Usability Professionals Association (UPA) and carried out in 23 countries by local UPA chapters or other interested parties. I took part in the event in Hamburg, Germany, which attracted over 300 people from industry, administration, and academia. My invited talk on Google User Experience was the final element of this great and well organized event and was very well-received by the approximately 150 people in the audience. Exciting!
