World Usability Day - November 10, 2016

Novmember 10, 2016 - World Usability Day

The theme for World Usability Day 2016 is "Sustainable User Experience (UX)." To give you a little context on what that means I have included the definition via the website.

"Green processes and sustainable products take into account goals such as recycle, reuse and incremental improvement. It’s about taking existing products and services and developing ways to refine and redesign them to be more effective, efficient and reusable in ways that enhance a person’s life."

With all that has been happening in the political world over the past several months we decided to create a utility to help depoliticize news from around the world. What this means is instead of seeeing all of these negative political feeds you can actually filter down results to show positive feeds surounding all of this political nonsense.

Take a look at the utility we created HERE

Happy World Usability Day from everyone here at High Monkey!
