comment Should users be given the option to sign up to a website without having to set a password?
I guess its any site where I think: " would I really care if someone else accessed 'my account' ". ie particularly when I intend to use a site just once. I'll watch for examples as they come up.

comment What practical steps can I take to reduce bias in usability testing?
I only take notes of stuff I want to pick up in the moment with the user. This means I can concentrate more on my interaction with the user. Actually recording what is going on I leave to the technology.

Agreed. Keep collecting data until you get to the point where you stop hearing new things. I'll put this as an answer.

I think this slightly misses the point that an ethnographic study is about observing and understanding people not statistically sampling their behaviour...
