OpenUsability & Kuroo at Linuxtag 2006

It's that time of the year again... Linuxtag! This year Linuxtag will take place in Wiesbaden and not -- as in previous years -- in Karlsruhe. For me personally Karlsruhe was the better choice since a few old friends live there (hello Gaugi!). Linuxtag has always been the chance to meet them for a little chitchat.

Linuxtag 2006 in Wiesbaden is nevertheless likely to become a special one for me: it will be the location of the first Kuroo developer meeting. Karim is flying over from Stockholm, Bjoern and I are travelling from Berlin. Together we will meet at the OpenUsability booth on Friday and Saturday to talk about where Kuroo is heading and discuss further strategies.

OpenUsability will again be present at Linuxtag 2006. You can find us at booth 4a where we will be happy to inform about usability involvement in open source projects. Apart from that we are going to conduct a live usability test of the still new Kuroo interface. For your reading pleasure we will provide you with some good usability books. They are best enjoyed on our comfortable sofa that will help you take a break from an otherwise busy Linuxtag 2006.
