Ready, set, ticket!

The usability ticket is finished. :-) Check it out and pass it on! There are two tickets (both are in the above PDF):

* One is for **usability violations**. Ever come across something that just really bugged you? Here's your chance to gripe to folks who will feel your pain.
* The other is for products whose **usability has just amazed you**. This might take a little thinking because we tend not to think about products that just work.

So, download the ticket and follow these steps to get started:

1. Find a product or object or...whatever. Just something that either works or doesn't work.
1. Take a picture or screenshot.
1. Post the picture to flickr.com. (If you don't already have an account, you will need to create one, but it is fast and free.)
1. Tag the item with "uticket" (without the quotes). This is extremely important as we won't be able to review the item you've ticketed unless you tag it with uticket (short for usability ticket). Feel free to add other tags to the photo as well (eg "usability", "design", "broken"). Wikipedia has more information on tagging (aka folksonomies).
1. Explain yourself! Add a comment on the item that describes why you ticketed the item. Love it? Hate it? Let us know!
1. Complete the paper citation and attach it to the item so other people can discover it.
1. Repeat!

And, lastly, a big thanks to Todd Robert who designed the usability ticket for us. :-) Thanks, Todd!

Now print some tickets and get started!
