Monday, April 10th, 2006

CHICAGO, IL., 10 Apr, 2006

Monday, April 10, 2006 marked the debut of Humanized’s public website, www.humanized.com, which provides computer users and interface designers alike a resource for finding and understanding humane interfaces.

A key component of this website is the Humanized Weblog, where individuals concerned with making the computer experience better can read and respond to articles covering topics ranging from stoves to voice mail, computer preferences, software development, and more. “The goal of the weblog,” said Vice President Atul Varma, “is threefold: to serve as a place where consumers can come to find usability-oriented product reviews and advice; to serve as a repository where aspiring user interface designers can find educational material on design fundamentals; and lastly, to serve as a forum where user interface professionals can find and contribute to thought-provoking commentary on the state of the field today.”

About Humanized, Inc.

Humanized, Inc. is a small software company based in Chicago, Illinois, dedicated to the promulgation of good human-computer interfaces. Humanized differs from many software companies by focusing on software usability, rather than software features. While the designers at Humanized believe that it is important for products to support the features that users need, they feel that many companies have sacrificed usability in a rush for additional product functionality. As a result, even though a user may know that their computer can do something, actually doing it has become difficult, time-consuming, and error-prone. Accordingly, Humanized believes that good interfaces make computers more pleasant and productive for the people who use them.
