Usabilidoido (2003-actual)

Usabilidoido is a cross-media Science dissemination project that includes a weblog, a podcast, a Twitter account, a Slideshare gallery, an Instagram account, a Facebook page, and a Youtube channel. Topics range from usability, interaction design, experience design, participatory design, and other issues linked to Frederick van Amstel’s research and practice. Launched in 2003, Usabilidoido is known as one of the first online resources about these topics in Portuguese.

Quite popular at the beginning, Usabilidoido earned the Top 10 weblog award from IBEST in 2006. Since then, the project leaned towards scientific communication in the niche of user experience research.

1095 posts have been published so far. Among them, 142 are podcasts, mainly from audio recordings of Frederick’s lectures and talks. The slides from these lectures and talks are available at Slideshare. As a result of this prolonged dissemination activity, Frederick has more than 5000 followers in his Twitter account.
