Reliability and Dependability in Usability Testing - http://www.uxmatters.com/mt...
Reliability and Dependability in Usability Testing
"Usability testing is a form of user research, in so far as it allows you to make conclusions about a large population based on observations of a small sample of that population. Essentially, we try to assess our products’ suitability for our marketplace—as well as its usability for the population of interest—by testing it with a group of typical users. Usability testing often involves both quantitative and qualitative data—either of which can be subject to misunderstandings. This column discusses principles of rigorous research as they apply to usability testing, with an emphasis on reliability and dependability." - Yury Vetrov from Bookmarklet

Sketchify — Simulate simple drawings with a wide range of inputs in real time
"Sketchify is an open source toolkit for simulating simple drawings with a wide range of inputs in real time. As an example, it allows you to quickly create a functional prototype of a moving car along with the mouse acting as a controller for its direction. Other inputs which Sketchify may apparently hook up to include: motion sensing (with a webcam), speech recognition, face recognition, Wii Remote, web services, Phidgets, and Arduino. All of these of cource can then be tied back to move, hide, and affect various interface elements. Here are a couple additional youtube videos which demonstrate more examples of what is possible with this tool." - Yury Vetrov from Bookmarklet

A Case for Mentorship
A great article from Scott Baldwin on UX mentorship: "Learning through teaching has continued to play an important role in the various UX management and product management roles I’ve had in my career. I’ve had the pleasure of working with diverse teams in varying locations and comprised of a people with a wide range of skills, experience, and education. Managing and supporting a team is one part courage-building, one part management, one part problem solving, mixed with some coaching and mentorship. I’m certainly not perfect at it, but I did want to spend some time developing a particular area of my skills: mentorship." - Yury Vetrov from Bookmarklet
