Brief thought as I (try to) vacation

Posted: November 17, 2007 in Brainstorm, Usability

I have finally gotten my hands on Nielsen’s Usability Engineering.  I’m very early on (about 40 pages in), but I have to say that my earlier ideas of mapping usability on to writing studies are feeling more and more dead on.

I almost feel as though I could write another book, modeled on Nielsen’s, that says everything he says, but about writing instead of usability.

I’m very excited about this.  The paper is still formulating, but I’m feeling gaps close and the cloud of ideas is beginning to coalesce.

    That’s why I was pushing you to get the book; I knew it would be useful and generative. I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of it.
