They’re replacing my machine at work (yeah) … and while I’m busy copiously backing-up everything, I still tought it might be useful to myself, and the faithful who visit this site, to offer some useful usability bookmarks. Not sure why usability is important to your church or charity website? Well, click-n-see:
- Examining the Role of De Facto Standards on the Web by Heidi Adkisson, BoxesAndArrows.com.
- Web Design Practices is a site devoted to helping designers understand what design practices are currently in use on the Web.
- 42 – My life, the universe and everything … well, mostly Dave W’s Web/Tech category.
- The Accessibility Category at Simon Willison’s Weblog – PHP, Python, CSS, XML and general web
- The This website category at KeithDevens.com … the name says it all
- Information & Design’s Usability Resources … a site I wish more church webmasters would visit …
- My tax dollars at work! Finally! Usability.gov
- Design & Usage category over at Saila.com
- you know you’re cool when you are referred to by one name … that name would be Zeldman …
- A List Apart … with an especially nifty article to help reduce that “boxy lady” look CSS often produces
- Ten Usability Heuristics – List compiled by Giorgio Brajnik – based on the original list Jakob Nielsen
- Seeker Sensitivity …. okay, this last one has nothing to do with church websites or usability … just some stuff I want to read …
- Finally … always read the Daily Sucker
As you can tell from the blank bullet-points … I’ll update the list from time-to-time today as I delete, reboot and burninate … over and over and over again until the hard drive is copyable.
