About this time last year I received a request from the Usability Study Group at Microsoft
to help find people to be part of their usability study. Looks like it's that time of year again.
Read the description below and send in your info. They sent me the list of stuff they are giving as "Thank Yous" to participants, and it is NOT trivial! Seattle/Redmond area SharePoint users only, for this one. We'll see about doing a virtual group in the future.
