OK/Cancel – The HCI comic
Well, it's been around for a while so it might be time to mention it at guuui.com: OK/Cancel is such a rare thing as a human-computer interaction comic, which is co-written and co-illustrated by Kevin Cheng and Tom Chi. It's updated weekly on Fridays.

Why write a boring article to promote HCI when you can write a rap. Prepare for serious HCI flava from the guys at OK/Cancel.

W3C rocks the house
Ok, this beats it all. If you are a musician and accessibility consultant this might be an obvious thing to do, otherwise not. Anyway, here's a song about writing accessibility standards for WCAG. To the tune of YMCA. Faturing "Sharky" the ScreenReader rapping. Made me fall of my chair with stomach cramps.

Let's rock the house...

Redesign Jakob Nielsen's site
Now this is fun! Win fame and prizes:

"…create a redesign of Jakob Nielsen's useit.com. Design a usable, intuitive layout and navigation, organize the content with usability in mind, and create a work of art which still reflects the importance and influence of Nielsen's work."

Sadly, Jakob states, that it's "highly unlikely" that he will use any of the designs.

Interface Hall of Shame revived
The good old Interface Hall of Shame from iarchitect.com has been gone for a while, but I just found it at a new location. The Interface Hall of Shame is an "irreverent collection of common interface design mistakes". New entries are from June 4. 2000 – but it's still an educational experience.
