comment How many participants for an ethnographic field study?
BTW your answer - nightning - is spot on in terms of user testing and statistical significance.

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...

comment Is marketing the closest career to UX?
There's a big gap on that list: Psychology and specifically Cognitive Psychology (and related: Cognitive Science): That's the background of Don Norman of Nielsen Norman Group who I'd argue is the founder of the whole industry. Don published "User Centered System Design: New Perspectives on Human-computer Interaction" back in 1986. It was based on his earlier cognitive psychology research. HCI grew out of psychologists and CogSci people getting their hands on the early computers.

Possibly you could explain what the problem is with users 'faking it' in the first place ?

In the Uk I've seen quite a lot in suburban houses in the garage particularly the integral garages in 70s and 80s housing which had small kitchens (no-one actually puts cars in them !)

In the UK. Washing machines in the UK sometimes end up in utility rooms (or sometimes garages!) as they don't need to be in the kitchen area. (Traditionally the UK has favoured small terraced houses rather than flats in apartment blocks).

Possibly a more interesting question is 'how do you design a dishwasher to indicate that its full of dirty not clean dishes...?' ( to avoid the 'Oh I forgot to run the dishwasher', situation )
