[DC LoCo] Looking for guinea pigs for usability testing...

Celeste Lyn Paul, who does human interface design work and one of the
"People behind KDE" (http://www.behindkde.org/people/celeste/) has been
trying to get a usability testing gig going for a couple of months. She
says that Canonical is now taking an interest and has sent some swag to
entice/reward the test subjects.
I'm game to do something at the Cleveland Park Library, but we'll need a
few LoCo volunteers and some guinea pigs -- mostly people who've had little
or no experience with Linux. The idea is to try to see what areas of the
user experience need to be improved upon. Or so I gather. Celeste wants
to keep the tests relatively short, somewhere in the 20-minute range.
Anyone interested in helping out? Celeste can provide more details if
there are questions...
P.S. I just added the folks who signed up at Takoma Park. So, welcome
newcomers. Feel free to introduce yourselves, ask questions, and
