Web usability consulting
Steve Krug (pronounced “kroog”) is best known as the author of Donít Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability, now in its third edition with over 450,000 copies in print.
Ten years later, he finally gathered enough energy to write another one: the usability testing handbook Rocket Surgery Made Easy: The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Finding and Fixing Usability Problems.
The books were based on the 20+ years heís spent as a usability consultant for a wide variety of clients like Apple, Bloomberg.com, Lexus.com, NPR, the International Monetary Fund, and many others.
His consulting firm, Advanced Common Sense (“just me and a few well-placed mirrors”) is based in Chestnut Hill, MA.
Steve currently spends most of his time teaching usability workshops, consulting, and watching old episodes of Law and Order.
UserTesting.com has a very fun two-part interview about the new edition of Don't Make Me Think. At one point, I actually can't remember Geena Davis's name. (40 min. each)
Lou Rosenfeld and I have our usual good time discussing wearables (18 min.)

UXPA. I’ll also be at UXPA 2016 in Seattle at the beginning of June. (No presentations this time; just enjoying it as a tourist.)
