comment Why not default a user's view to the middle of a sorted list?
Good point. I guess there is a reason why cops ask people to recite the alphabet backwards to determine if they are drunk. :)

comment How should I introduce participants to a usability test?
I disagree somewhat on the "Don't ask for design suggestions" point. Recently, I've been doing a lot of testing with expert audiences that use ours and related systems all day. With that audience I find that they tend to have informed suggestions for how they would like to do things. They aren't all gems but it does make for some good facilitated design sessions. With a novice audience, I agree with you.

If I can't find someone at least slightly removed from the design process to facilitate, I usually just don'tn mention that I designed it and let the participant assume what he or she will. It's a lie of omission but I'm comfortable with it.
