The dot.com crash of 2000 was a wake-up call, and told us that the Web has far to go before achieving the acceptance predicted for it in '95. A large part of what is missing is quality; a primary component of the missing quality is usability.

Hear Jeff Johnson's interview podcast on software and website usability at the University of Canterbury (25 min.)… (more)
