World Usability Day 2006

Tuesday, November 14, is World Usability Day, something you will wish you had paid some serious attention to once the holidays begin. If your life is cluttered with gizmos that are designed to make life easier but actually make it harder, this is your day! Or. if you have been lucky enough to find things that actually do what they are intended to, and do it easily and well, it's your day, too.

The concept of this year's "Red Balloon Initiative" is to take pictures of things that work well and things that don't work well in your life and upload the pictures to Flickr. While it all sounds like a good idea, celebrating the day seems a little complicated. There's a Hall of Fame and a Hall of Shame and I think it involves voting. Did these people not get the memo? Please. Voting is so last weeek.

If the above sounds like a good idea, check it out, won't you? And if by chance youdo figure out how to make World Usability Day, well, usable, please leave a comment,

Hat tip: Dina
