ISO Standards for HCI and Usability
The International Standards Organisation publishes standards related to Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Usability.

These standards are categorised as primarily concerned with:

1. The use of the product (effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction in a context of use)

2. The user interface and interaction

3. The process used to develop the product

4. The capability of an organisation to apply user centred design

Survey on how folks keep up with information architecture
ACIA ran a survey in 2001 to learn about which information resources and events information architects use to keep up with field. The research included magazines, journals and newsletters, discussion lists, web sites, books, conferences, meetings, and a rating of which of these resources are considered most useful. Though the survey is more than a year old, there are lots of references to useful stuff.

DENIM, a Sketch-based Web Site Prototyping Tool
Through a study of web site design practice, the Group for User Interface Research at Berkeley University observed that web site designers design sites at different levels of refinement (site map, storyboard, and individual page) and that designers sketch at all levels during the early stages of design. However, existing web design tools do not support these tasks very well.

Informed by these observations, they created DENIM, a tool that helps web site designers in the early stages of design.

DENIM supports sketching input, allows design at different refinement levels, and unifies the levels through zooming.

Supported platforms:
- Windows 95, 98, Me, NT 4.0, 2000, or XP
- Mac OS X 10.1 (10.0 is not supported)
- Solaris, Linux, and other Unix-like operating systems

Greek text
Greek text can be helpful when designing initial design comps and prototypes, where the actual content isn’t important. 4guysfromrolla.com has developed a neat little thing, which can generate a specified number of fake latin paragraphs for you.

Jakob Nielsen has an article about how greeked text can come in handy, when you want to test how easy users can identify the location of different content areas in different layout templates.

Calculating market efficiency and business effects of a web site
If you want to know the market efficiency of a web site, web log analysis can be very effective. But most web analytic software doesn’t provide you with easy-to-understand metrics and doesn’t take business goals and outcomes such as conversion rates and return on investments into consideration.

At Future Now, an e-business consultancy, you can download a suite of calculators included in an Excel file. The calculators can help you measure the success of a site in terms of a few critical metrics on market efficiency and business effects.

Customer Focus Calculator - We We Monitor
As proud as a company may be of itself and its product or service, most customers only care about how well it can help them meet their wants and needs.

To help you answer whether a site is talking mostly about themselves or their customers needs, FurureNow has developed an analysis tool that counts certain words on a site that are key indicators of whether focus is on the customer or not.

IBM tools to develop user-centered information and site structure
For your site to be successful, you will need to organize information in a way that makes sense to your users. People develop expectations for how to find different types of information and how to accomplish particular tasks. They may expect to search alphabetically (as when using a phone book), according to groups of similar items (as in a grocery store), or in a sequence of steps to fulfilling certain tasks.
IBM has developed the tools that can make your user-centered information design easier to manage.
