[About the BasKet Note Pads Usability Project:]

This is the project set up by Frank Ploss, the
student who is participating to the
OpenUsability.org's "Season of Usability" and
maintainer of the BasKet Usability Project. It is
part of a research project for his diploma thesis
at the Univesity of Hamburg, Germany.

The aim of the usability project is to improve the
usability of the BasKet Note Pads tool. Usability,
as Frank sees it, not only depends on the user
interface, but also on the underlying assumptions
that are made about the users and their context of
use. So, knowing about the users, their contexts
and claims are of vital importance for this

Also, the aim of this project is to also involve
you, the users, into the development of BasKet
Note Pads. With your specific knowledge about how
you use BasKet Note Pads and with what intentions,
you can make a difference in the further
development of the application!
