Thought leaders

I'm turning my thoughts towards the thought leaders in this space. There hasn't been much work in usability with open source software, but there has been some. I would start with the references who have discussed open source software usability:

  • Calum Benson (Calum also announced the first GNOME usability study in 2001)
  • Matthias Müller-Prove
  • Jiri Mzourek
  • David M Nichols
  • Michael B Twidale
I would add to this list other thought leaders in user experience and usability:
Since a target audience for my research is the open source community, I also plan to seek out several leaders in that community:
  • Shawn Powers (of Linux Journal)
  • Eric S. Raymond
Who else should I contact? If you have suggestions, please leave them in the comments.
