World Usability Day in Bristol on 13th November

World Usability Day

In case you didn’t know, it’s World Usability Day next Thursday (13th November). The general theme is ‘Transportation’, but it’s really just an excuse to think about usability and how it affects our lives.

As part of WUD, Bristol Usability Group will be running a Usability Surgery. Myself, Joe Leech from cxpartners and Dave Ellender will be available at the Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol’s Harbourside from 1130 to 1600 to offer free usability and user experience advice, help and support. If you have a website that you think could be more user-friendly, want a job in user experience or just want to chat about the latest thinking in usability come along and talk to us! You can find out more details at bristolusability.org.uk and on Upcoming.

The surgery will be followed by drinks in the Watershed bar from 5.30pm. Hope to see you there!

Oh, and here’s Bill Gates doing his best to remove any traces of excitement from his voice as he talks about World Usability Day 2007…(!)
