This post is partially outdated.

Today I thought I’d share some of the most valuable usability and user experience articles and resources I know, in a somewhat wild mix. Since there’s presumably enough to read and talk about later, please just welcome some great articles and research papers you hopefully enjoy as much as I do:

    That’s an awesome list.

    There are two articles I keep close:

    “Information Interaction Design: A unified field theory of design” by
    Nathan Shedroff:

    “All watched over by machines of loving grace: Some ethical guidelines
    for user experience in ubiquitous-computing settings” by Adam
    Greenfield (Boxes and Arrows)

    Not sure these belong on your list. They’re just good. Curious to hear
    about other personal touchstones.

    Late addition: If this was helpful, take a look at my Delicious bookmarks tagged usability/ux and temporary, too.

Cover: CSS Optimization Basics.

Perhaps my most relevant book: CSS Optimization Basics (2018). Writing CSS is a craft. As craftspeople we strive to write high quality CSS. In CSS Optimization Basics I lay out some of the most important aspects of such CSS. (Also available in a bundle with Upgrade Your HTML and The Web Development Glossary.)
