About Shane Morris: UXB

Hi, my name is Shane Morris, and I am a "User Experience Evangelist" at Microsoft, based in Melbourne, Australia. I have worked as an interaction designer / information architect / usability specialist since 1991.

My reason for blogging is to share what I know and what Microsoft knows about user experience. Although I am passionate about many things, this blog will just be about user experience / interaction design / information architecture / usability / user-centred design etc.
