I have been thinking about usability and ergonomy for ages, without even having a clue about the existance of these domains. A couple of years ago I found out about it by means of information design; an epiphany struck me when I found out what is meant.
And now at last I started an academic study at the university of Leuven, to be trained as a usability designer (http://soc.kuleuven.be/com/mediac/otc/lv/ud/index.htm). Just had my first session last Tuesday and I’m all thrilled with this Santa Claus feeling (you know: “Santa Claus is coming!”).
So I decided to set up a blog to share my ideas while I’m evolving to a mature (pooha!) usability designer.
