FLOSS Usability Sprint Seeking Great Usability Practitioners

FLOSS Usability Sprint V is happening November 2-4, 2007 at Google in Mountain View. This one is special for a number of reasons. First, it’s the fifth one. Second, our project list is once again superb, including Firefox, Chandler, Socialtext, and WiserEarth. Third, it’s the first sprint being primarily organized by members of this burgeoning community: Daniel Schwartz and Jon Slenk.    (MO7)

The goal of these sprints is simple: Make Open Source software more usable, focusing especially on software for social benefit. Our approach is to bring catalyze collaboration between the usability and open source communities. The sprint takes place over three full days (November 2-4). It’s fun, it’s intense, and it’s gratifying. It’s a fantastic way to meet and work with an amazing group of people.    (MO8)

This sprint is shaping up to be really outstanding. We’re still looking for a few great usability practitioners to participate, so if you’d like to help some socially-oriented Open Source projects in a concrete way, please sign up. And please spread the word!    (MO9)
