Promoting bad usability? I think not…more like making users aware of bad usability and Web design.

Today I came across NetLife Research’s 2009 Bad Usability Calendar.  NetLife Research is a team of usability specialists located in Oslo, Norway.
Bad Usability Calendar 2009
As the new year approaches, so does their new edition of the (in)
famous Bad Usability Calendar featuring 48 classic design mistakes, all of which have been submitted by Web users.

Their team of experts filters through the nominations and create the bad user experience calendar, rewarding those users whose bad user experience design nominations are used.

NetLife Research uses these calendars to distribute annual examples of bad design around the world. I plan on using this calendar of bad usability as an example for my User Experience lecture for the 352 Media Group Internship program.
