Celebrate World Usability Day Boston 2010

Join us for UX Trivia Night – aka “The Smackdown” – and celebrate the 6th annual World Usability Day.  Sponsored by:

Whether you’re a UX novice, expert practitioner, or anywhere inbetween, this is chance to have fun, engage in good-natured competition, and learn a few things to boot. This will not be the UX SAT’s. Simply get together a team of 3-6 people, or join a pick-up team there, and give it a shot.

This year, hundreds of events will take place across the globe to raise awareness for, and celebrate, usability and user-centered design — from Australia, to Brazil, to Belarus.  More on World Usability Day.  Come participate in Boston’s festivities!

Rules

  1. Brain power only! No smartphones, dumbphones, tablets, laptops, books, etc.
  2. No shouting out answers
  3. Final decision goes to the panel of Judges. Tie breakers, crowd scoring, and other non-traditional scores are meant to keep this fun!
