Gifts for User Experience Geeks 2010

Gifts for User Experience Geeks 2010
Nov 15th, 2010

As part of a tradition over the last two years (2008 and 2009) it is once again time for the gifts for user experience geeks post for the 2010 holiday season.  This list is a collection of items I have come across over the last year that would make the ideal gifts for UX geeks like Information Architects, Usability Specialists, Interaction Designers, and even Web Designers.  I also put the call out to several of my colleagues to contribute suggestions and I have included those where I felt they were a good fit.  Thank you to everyone who contributed!  Hope you like the list.  If you notice something not on my list let me know and I’ll add it!
