In case you missed it, the WebGuild held their Usability 2.0 event in April featuring…
Sean Kane, showed off some of his behind the scenes work on Netflix.
Jon Wiley showed off some of his and his team’s work behind the scenes on Google Apps. He asks, can you market usability?
Luke Wroblewski of Yahoo! talked about the structures of web content. What do M-16s and AK-47s have to do with Web 2.0? (hint: révolution!) How does usability address the complexity of data on the web?
The three then participated in a round table discussion.
The entire two and a half hour presentation is available to view on Google Video. There’s lots of great stuff here.
Additionally, Luke also did a followup blog interview with moderator Reshma Kumar, VP of WebGuild, in which he expands upon the topics he discussed at the event. This interview will also stand on its own if you don’t have time to watch the video first.
In the interview, Luke touched upon the roles of form and visual organization in usability, addressed design for the mobile web, noted the value of usabilty testing, and more. Check it out.Tweet
