The Usability Post
Thoughts on design and user experience by Dmitry Fadeyev

Introducing the UsabilityPost Forum

A lot of interesting and valuable discussions take place in the comments of the posts here on the blog. I think it would be useful to have a dedicated platform to take these discussions even further. So today I’m opening up a new section of the site: the UsabilityPost Forum. Access it from the menubar above or go directly to:

Feel free to post about anything you find interesting – for example, a good book you’ve just read or a useful app you’ve discovered. Launched a new site or app and need feedback? Post about it. Discuss latest trends and design ideas.

Of course since the forum has just been launched there might be a bug or two hiding somewhere and a few design elements to iron out. If you find a bug please let me know, either here or on the forum itself.

Get started by signing up here.

“For even falsehood, uttered by the tongue of man, seemed like truth and light before this hopelessly-deaf and unresponsive silence.”

My new book: a translation of selected short stories by Leonid Andreyev, the father of Russian Expressionism from the Silver Age of Russian literature. A piercing, pitiless glance into the heart of the human condition.

Proust wrote that the true voyage of discovery is not to visit strange lands, but to possess other eyes, to behold a hundred universes that each of them beholds. Thus, in the words of Ruskin, what good books give us is not mere knowledge, but sight.
