Facilitators: Mickey and Sarah

Building on the Usability session on Wednesday, we will try to come up with a checklist to bring to your next project to help answer some usability questions. Hopefully, we'll also talk about how to continue this discussion.

Wow, you've already added notes here! Thanks! So, this is turning into a discussion on making Usability Usable, and building some support systems (website, forum, articles etc) around this topic. We're looking for people to add to this, so let us know if you're interested!
