There are many ways to interpret a web site. Through user interfaces, design patterns, business achievements, and social acceptance, one can obtain a general and sufficient understanding of a web site and what it has to offer. I am developing a project that may help us better comprehend and express the ability of a web site to achieve value for its users. As a starting point, I will compare two distinctly different web sites that have some overlap in functional capability. The sites will be compared on several dimensions, using different types of metrics and forms of description. By actively using both sites with experience I have gained through working with them, my research stays grounded in reality. Two sites that I am currently working with are Amazon and BookMooch. I use both to exchange books with others – selling books on Amazon, and exchanging books for free on BookMooch. My work will be posted on KeyContent.org. An outline and introduction will be coming soon. Stay tuned to this blog for regular updates and insights.
