Cross Post: The ABC interviewed me about being a Usability Specialist

29 October, 2008

About a year ago the ABC interviewed me about being a Usability Specialist. They came and videoed me up at the usability lab I use, my home office and even speaking at a conference. It was all quite fun.

Anyway, today I accidently found a photo of myself on the ABC Science website with a link to the interview with me. You can read about my job and watch the video interview here

Mobile people who don’t understand mobile

2 June, 2008

“But if you claim to be [a mobile] professional and haven’t at least read about the iPhone a year after its release you should be shot.”
Stilgherrian on Mobile Content World and the fact that the audience I gave my iPhone User Experience talk too, weren’t familiar with the iPhone.

I obviously agree with him and thus why I proposed the talk.
I see it as an opportunity 🙂

Tweets from Mobile Content World

30 May, 2008

Check out a couple of the tweets from Mobile Content World yesterday.
I spoke on the iPhone user experience and it was scary to realise how many people in the audience (at a mobile conference) hadn’t seen the iPhone or the full benefits.

Voda will sell the iPhone in Oz

6 May, 2008

Looks like Voda will be selling the iPhone here in Oz (Official statement via Engadget)
No word on if it’s exclusive or not… Voda will sell it in 10 markets, including Oz.
I predicted Optus, let’s see if it’s also with them.

I don’t mind Voda, I’m just happy it’s not a Telstra exclusive 🙂
