Help Wanted: Testers for Streetsblog 2.0

As Aaron has mentioned, we’re hard at work on a redesign of Streetsblog, slated for release this spring. Coming up soon, we’re going to offer all Streetsblog readers a sneak preview; in the meantime, we’re looking for some early feedback from a smaller group of testers.

To start, we’d like to invite a few interested readers into our offices this week for short user testing sessions. Basically, we’ll sit you down in front of the new site and ask you to do a few common tasks, then observe your experience and ask for feedback. The whole thing should take about an hour.

We’re looking for three volunteers to come in this Wednesday, 2/27. If you are interested and available, please contact Bryan Lence at help [at] openplans [dot] org to schedule a time.

Thanks!
