The history runs something like this: in the beginning there were websites built by people who understood the newfangled technologies that made them possible. People who used the websites struggled, so, in much the same way that in the early days of film the studios screen-tested daily footage, we started to put models in front of people and tested how easy or difficult they found them to use. Out of such “usability testing” came a startling revelation: people don't stop behaving like human beings when you ask them to operate a computer; they respond not just rationally but emotionally.
