Journal of Information Architecture
Came across the NYPL’s new online usability tool: Infomaki.
From the NYPL’s labs page:
“Our design sessions frequently result in debate about which of two words is more compelling or accurate for our users, or whether a particular button is noticeable in a particular location. When we can, we test designs on real people using paper or digital prototypes, but it is impractical to test every day; sitting down with real people is not always as simple as you’d expect, what with the schedules of busy New Yorkers…
So, we set out to create our own rapid-testing usability laboratory from scratch, and last Tuesday we launched it, in rough beta form. Nicknamed Infomaki, it’s showing a lot of potential even in its first 48 hours.
It’s not groundbreaking technology. Built on a Rails back-end (my rapid-prototyping framework of choice), it currently supports two kinds of tests: standard multiple choice (with optional “Other:” box) and a “Where would you click…?” screenshot that records click locations.”

‘Will the Real Information Architect Please Stand Up?’
Excellent presentation defining IAs – who they are and how they work/think.
