CHIFOO, the Computer-Human Interaction Forum of Oregon, hosted a usability scavenger hunt for World Usability day 2011. In one day, hunters around the world captured a library of usability gems.

Everything around us provides clues about how our environment works. Some are more effective than others. The scavenger hunt gives all sorts of examples of the success & confusion that environmental cues can give. Usability is simply good logic, but it often takes a real live human to experience the user scenario and call out the issues, or success!

The hunt began on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 6:00 am (PST) and continued through 6:00 pm (PST) on Thursday, Nov. 10.
