FWA is a PhD student, but also so much more. Since my contract with VagueCompany ended, I’ve worked as a researcher at the Unnamed University of Technology and I’ll soon start working as a researcher for ConsumerCompany.

My field of experience keeps growing, but the core is experimental psychology, with a bias towards user-system interaction, methods and measurements and systems in technology.

  1. DEAR FAW,
    The Internet has transformed how we communicate with the public, but there are still many challenges in making information easy to find. Since you cover usability in FAW, I thought you might be interested in a study that my nonprofit published this summer about how people find information online. The study covers three groups: non-profit organizations and cities; web designers and firms; and the general public.
    The study was fascinating on a number of levels, and I invite you to read the executive summary or download a PDF of the findings at http://www.idea.org/find-information.html .
    The survey results sparked ideas about tools we could provide that might make finding information online easier. This fall, we will start beta testing a cool new new navigational tool. I don’t have your email, so if you are interested, you can sign up for our beta here: http://www.spicynodes.org/ or to stay abreast of our (very) occasional new projects, you can get our newsletter here: http://www.idea.org/newsletter.html

    Hello Michael,
    it certainly sounds interesting. I have signed up for the beta, and am waiting to see when it comes out (the website now claims late spring?). I will definitely read the report and let you know what I think.
    By the by, have you tried submitting it for a conference?

    Sincere regards,

  3. I love your site. Keep it up !
