This is great work!  The heuristics Gary uses (Nielsen) are also my  
favorite.  I think this is a great starting point.  It seems like we  
may want to add some heuristics that speak to specific challenges we  
have in the various applications including any style guidelines that  
exist.  Gary's reporting out of the results is also quite  
good...consise, explicit including annotated screen shots and  
suggested solution(s).  We'll want to think about how to combine  
multiple evaluators results into a similar report.  I attended some  
interesting sessions on this subject at CHI and will pull together  
some information to share with the group next week.  I suggest we  
schedule a teleconference or breeze call in the next couple of weeks  
to get the ball rolling.

Who would like to be involved in the heuristic work?
What is your availability in the next couple weeks?
