We’re still here! We managed to press the right buttons to start and stop the recording again for another week.
In this week’s show:
- Martin interiews Ting-Ray Chang, User Experience Researcher at Canonical, about usability testing Ubuntu.
If you are interested in participating with User Experience Studies at Canonical then you are invited to send Ting-Ray Chang an email.
- We discuss playing Human Resource Machine and testing out the Raspberry Pi 3.
- We share a Command Line Lurve:
Good for seeing what’s doing what to your disk; e.g. I wanted to see what was writing to disk while I was running
sudo fatrace -p $(pidof ncdu) -t -f W
The above shows timestamp and types of action.
- And we go over your feedback – thanks for sending it – please send more!

I also participated in the usability study at Canonical’s offices. My experience perfectly mirrors that of Wimpy. It was a lot of fun and Ting-ray was great.
Would love to participate in more of those but it’s a bit of a commute for me.
