Vitamin CH Chocolate: that substance without which we would get nothing done

Are you in Arizona? If so, I would love it if you would join me at Gangplank for Wednesday's hacknight. I have been meaning to get to hacknight for many weeks and now I have to go - no backing out for Kathy.

Why? Because Wednesday from noon to 9 pm, I will be sitting at Gangplank doing usability testing on the allvoices site. I am hoping to get a bunch of people to sit with me (one at a time) and let me know what they think of the site. We are in the middle of a re-design - what a great time for you to let me know what you think of the site, the direction, and the whole idea of citizen journalism.

How do you participate? Show up! Check out at Gangplank for the location and a map.

I would have liked to have used Morae for the usability testing, but I am not far enough up to speed on the tool yet to do so.  It isn't that the tool is hard to use. It makes sense to me already after just a short time of playing with it. The real problem has been getting enough time to play with it and really understand what it can do. So, for this round, the testing will be a series of tasks followed by a series of questions. I will (hopefully) be timing you as you do the tasks. If I can work it, I will even be recording videos of the participants.

Do you want to come? Let me know. I have set up an event on Facebook and one on upcoming. You can also reach me by email, etc. You don't have to RSVP. But the more people I know are coming, the more like I am to get permission to get some giveaways for the participants. You like free stuff, don't you? Then - RSVP and show up!

Thanks to Gangplank for letting me camp out and use a corner of the space to do the testing. It is much appreciated!
