comment Thoughts on creating a portfolio?
All good ideas - iterative UX research & design always makes a good narrative. Just be sure to explain which bits you personally did, and which bits were done collaboratively or by other team members. If you clearly attribute ownership, you can happily show the whole story through to finished product without any guilt.

comment How to test user in real situation?
Morae does have some valuable features that camtasia doesn't. Remote viewing is one. It's easy to stream a live session to another PC with Morae.

Ofer, Matt, - I agree Criteria are good, but they are also among the most expensive I've used.

comment Participant recruitment agencies - recommendations
Qualtel seems to be substantially cheaper than criteria, but I'll get back to you when I know what the quality of the recruitment is like (they are currently doing a job for me).

comment Participant recruitment agencies - recommendations
The 'recruitment supplier section on AQR looks very useful, thanks for the link! However, there seems to be a fair number of false positives in there, i.e. research companies who do their own internal recruitment. Not sure if they'd offer competitive deals for pure recruitment outsourcing...
