So that comes back to my eternal grumpy question....
What the hell is 'doing usability'???
Usability is a quality attribute. 'Usable' is an adverb.
I'm a designer. I design things that are usable (and on time, in budget,
hopefully somewhat pleasurable and meet my client's goals - all good
quality attributes). I don't need no 'usability people' to give me
out-of-context, impractical, unfeasible, inexperienced advice based on
watching a very small number of people doing a leading set of scenarios
in some sort of learnability test...
