On Wednesday, we will have our first Open Software Usability Get-Together at the Chaos Computer Club in Berlin.
Rationale: There are many OS project members in Berlin, wishing for usability advice. And there is a strong usability scene who might want to contribute to OS projects. So why not starting a monthly get-together to introduce them to each other and encourage a long-term collaboration :-)
Today, I sent an invitation to the Berlin Usability list, and announced it on berlin at openusability org, the mailing list for these events. From KDE, Stephan Binner will attend - if more of you living around the area are interested to come, sign in to berlin at openusability org or contact me.
Oh, and after a long time, I've added a new chapter to the human interface guidelines: Status Bars. I'd be glad to read comments, or to find volunteers to add other chapters and implementation hints :-)
