Well, World Usability Day has wrapped up in New Zealand.
The theme of the day this year was “transport”. I took the Global Transport Challenge, but I didn’t end up too nicely. I drive a Diesel to the bus stop, catch a bus into town and then walk up the hill. I can’t really do anything different, except catch a train, but the train doesn’t depart near where I catch my bus, sooo? I really miss things like the Metro and the Underground. I wish we had something like that in New Zealand.
In New Zealand there was only two World Usability Day events, one in Wellington and one in Auckland. Unfortunately the one in Wellington I wouldn’t have been able to get to in time. I would really like to have attended though. Run by the good folks at Optimal Usability.
Actually, I got a cool pressie out of it from my good friends at Optimal Usability, and I thought about public transport. They do some amazing work, they have a nice market in New Zealand too. I don’t see much competition for them, and even if there was they’d just clean the fecking floor with them. Just wonderful!
Anyway, I hope everyone had a good World Usability Day, and did their part to raise the awareness of it all
