The Mom Test

I like the “Mom Test”: as much as anyone. And I have to say good job for these products that had recently passed:

* “Firefox”: 1.5 RC3
* “Thunderbird”: 1.5 RC
* “Gmail”:
* “iPod”: with video
* “Flickr”:

She uses these on a daily basis. Now for some that’s still in the pipeline:

* “LibraryThing”: She likes this, but the appeal is only slightly short of sending “her”: into calaloging frenzy.
* “Picasa”:

And past graduates:

* “Blogger”:
* “MSN Messenger”: and, before that,
* “ICQ”:

Yeah, cool mom. 🙂
