World Usability Day

  • Too many Filipino web apps fall prey to the archipelagic mindset: forbidding, closed-garden insularity. That attitude won’t make money or spread ideas in networked markets.

    On the other hand, Filipinos are famed for their hospitality. Good to see MMMUG help Filipinos translate that hospitality onto the Web.

  • According to the worldusability.org site, there will be a usability Exhibit tomorrow.
