Nov 10, 2005: UXmatters Launches

I'm glad to be an advisor to the brand spanking new UX-dedicated magazine, UXmatters. The first issue came out last weekend during DUX, and features initial contributions from a stellar lineup:

  • Dan Brown: no, not the "da Vinci Code" guy, but an excellent IA writer nonetheless, and quite involved in the IAI
  • Dirk Knemeyer: board member at the AIGA Center for Brand Experience, the IIID, and UXnet
  • Whitney Quesenbery: UPA president and UXnet board member
  • Robert Reimann: IxDA president and co-author, with Alan Cooper, of About Face 2.0: The Essentials of Interaction Design
  • Luke Wroblewski: author of Site-Seeing: A Visual Approach to Web Usability

A veritable alphabet soup, but that's a good sign: as an interdisciplinary pursuit, UX needs all those acronyms involved to succeed. Kudos to publisher Pabini Gabriel-Petit for pulling it off; if the momentum continues, UXmatters will be required reading for the entire industry.
