we're startled ... to discover a new field of web usability testing and design - for cats! Web usability guru Jakob Nielsen has just released Mobile Usability for Cats: Essential Design Principles for Felines. The principles were informed by usability testing with a representative mix of cats (4 British shorthairs, 3 Persians, 2 Siamese, 2 Maine Coons, 2 Russian Blues, and 3 moggies).  

Looking for a job in this field? You might find one at Oberlin College, a private liberal arts college in Ohio (the first American institution of higher learning to regularly admit female and black students). Take a peek at their Meowberlin project.
