Adrian is passionate about building effective teams and great products. He co-founded Quietstars to help companies do that using Lean, Agile and UX practices.

You'll find him working with startup and product development teams — doing everything from coaching & teaching to hands on UX & dev work. With more than 15 years experience working with startups, established businesses and agencies Adrian is an active member of the Agile and Lean UX communities. He's also a mentor for Lean Startup Machine and speakup.io.

You'll often find him ranting in a corner of the bar about how agile, business and user experience folk need to play nice together. Be kind and buy him whisky.

Standards are awful for historical references - standards are made after folk start doing things... that's why they're standards ;-)

@PhillipW - yes it was. I'll edit the answer with a quote. It's the term "UX" I'm after tracking - not the working practices (the working practices were around long before the term was ;-)

And I actually had the Norman and Draper book too. Branda Laurel uses talks about the user experience - but it's not used in the context of a role/domain. Good stuff though. Thanks.

I beg to differ on the 2005 front. I know I was using it before that - and the question included a reference to a 1995 usage in the same context ;-)
