I'm currently looking into the early stages of the _actual_ design processes in IT-companies (specific target mobile devices) - and how (and when) usability/user involvement issues are dealt with. Anyone with similar interests - or with contacts you think I should try:)?
I have a particular interest in accessibility, but there is an overlap between the concepts so for now I'm looking around more widely.
So far the main impression is that the times are short and things get rushed to the market quite a bit - but I really would like to get a better understanding of how things work:)
The info I get I will compile and send back to the list in case anyone else is interested.
Have a nice weekend!
