A good reading on Web usability


Sparing Jacob Neilson's AlertBox, any good reading on "web usaibility" principles, or website design principles from the point of view of usability?


PS: I've used Google, but I'm looking for advise from people who've read something relevant to my question and have found something interesting.

I was leaning towards responses of the kind, "hey! I read that one. It is very insightful." When you Google, there are just so many, and not all of them add value. Not all of them are interesting. Not all of them have something wise.

Boxes and Arrows is a good read http://www.boxesandarrows.com

I like joining mailing lists and slowly learning about a topic: You could try the CHI list: http://www.listserv.acm.org/archives/chi-web.html

There is also an active Indian usability list that might be of interest to you

Dude,
You should be less suspicious :-) Try google if you need to know. There are a few women who hang out on JOS, and even use their names. Well, at least sometimes.

My review should be somewhere in the reviews section.

I second Marktaw's recommendation.

Don't Make Me Think is THE single BEST book on web useability that I've EVER read.  I't not comprehensive, but it's 100% useful, no fluff.
