UX Zeitgeist

At UX Zeitgeist you can find popular user experience related books, topics, and people.

According to their FAQ, "UX Zeitgeist combines input from the UX community with data from a variety of web services to generate an unequaled collection of UX books and related topics. UX Zeitgeist also profiles the trends that describe the field's evolution."

The service is provided by Rosenfeld Media. It's quite similar to Chris McEvoy's Usability Views except that Chris also has popular articles.

Blog on the Microsoft Office user interface

Jensen Harries from the Microsoft users experience team has started a blog on the Office user interface.

" In this blog, I hope to write a lot about my thoughts about the ins and outs of defining and designing the user experience of Office. I'll be writing frequently about the future of Office but also sometimes the past. And there may be times I find it irresistible to delve into general user interface issues or even (gasp) software issues in general."
