UPA, Y’all

I’m in Austin, Texas attending the UPA (Usability Professionals Association) conference. Last night there was a “Birds of a Feather” group for folks interested in remote usability testing. The discussion was moderator by Aaron Marcus and about 30-40 people showed up. It was great to hear how excited and passionate this small group was about these fairly bleeding-edge methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative.

A recurring theme at UPA has been combining qualitative and quantitative methods for more effective analysis. Catriona Campbell from Foviance is giving a talk dedicated to the topic. We’ve seen a lot of interest from clients lately in running these kinds of studies. We’ve conducted a bunch of these combined studies recently and seen exciting results that have helped us understand users better than if we used one method in isolation.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!

    I’m curious to find out what blog platform you have been using? I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest website and I’d like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions?

    Right now it sounds like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  8. Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  10. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
