Making hay while the sun shines

Usability and relaxing

I've been doing preparation for usability tests for a client over the last couple of days. This involved coming up with new interfaces for their search systems, then mocking them up so they can be tested with paper prototypes.

To take a break after all the mock-ups, I've done a review of Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison, a book best known because it was the basis for the film Soylent Green, which in turn is best known because, well, you'll have to watch it to find out, but I ain't going nibbling on little green blocks of 'protein' any more.

As an aside, I thought about calling SF Bookshelf 'Soylent Green', or 'Soylent-another-colour', but all the variants I could think of had either gone on the good top level addresses (i.e. .com or .net) or sounded a bit naff. Still, I'm happy with the name now, and I'll be even happier when I get enough time to put in the graphical look I've got in mind for the site.
