Topics[edit]

In this episode an interview with the MediaWiki Usability team set up with a grant from the stanton foundation - what they've been doing, what they've done, and what's left to do. Also, discussion of the recently announced Ford Foundation grant to improve WikimediaCommons usability.

The project is organised at usability.wikimedia.org and the testing of their current plans are staged at usability.wikimedia.org/prototype. Their first qualitative results (with links to the videos of usertesting) can be read at the Foundation Blogpost Usability study results sneak preview.
