SpoolCast #2.1: Facebook Becomes Anti-Social?
Recorded: September 11, 2006
Part 1 of 4
Duration: 28m 36s

Present for this recording were Jared M. Spool, DeWayne Purdy, Kyle Pero, Lyle Kantrovich, Rashmi Sinha, Nate Bolt, and Joshua Porter. You can meet the crew here.

In session, the SpoolCast Crew convened to discuss a variety of topics:

  • What would our dream panel at a conference be?
  • Do the Comparative Usability Evaluation studies really tell us anything about the discipline of usability research?
  • Is usability practice an engineering discipline or a craft?
  • Is there value to conducting heuristic evaluations?
  • Is it worth discussing how many users should be in a usability test?
  • What can we learn from the recent Facebook controversy?

I’ve divided the recording into four parts to make it easier to listen to while commuting.
Part 2 lives here.
Part 3 lives here.
Part 4 lives here.

The transcript is available here.

I think I’ve solved the volume problem, having discovered how dynamic range compression can be my best friend. I’m sure you’ll let me know if I got it wrong. :)

We’d love to hear what you think. Leave your comments below or you can write us at SpoolCast@uie.com.

    Who’s the artist behind the exotica-themed intro/outro music? I like the discussions on this show.
