Hi folks,

As part of the Fluid Project ( we've been  
working on a section of our wiki which we currently describe as:

"a How-to Guide filled with user-centered design (UCD) techniques you  
can use to learn from your users and design better user experiences.

The ****  includes information on a variety of UCD practices, from  
performing user research and creating models (such as personas and  
scenarios to inform the design process) to performing user experience  
walkthroughs and user testing of your website or application."

Here is what it contains:

     * [Accessibility Resources]
     * [Comparative & Competitive Analysis]
     * [Contextual Inquiry]
     * [Design Patterns]
     * [Persona]
     * [User Experience Walkthroughs]
     * [User Modeling]
     * [User Testing]
     * [UX Resources]

We came up with what we thought a catchy name for it, but there has  
been some confusion about what exactly it is so we are considering new  
names. (I'm not giving you the old name so I don't prejudice you. :))  
I'm wondering if folks on this list might have some suggestions on  
names for this which might give off good "scent" for you. Meaning, a  
name you'd click on because it gives you an idea of what it contains,  
or sounds like it would pertain to your work, etc..

If you could cc: the fluid-work list with your response, too, that'd  
be great. :)

Thanks for your suggestions!
