Nate Bolt — Bolt | Peters

Remote research studies allow you to recruit subjects quickly, cheaply, and immediately, giving you the opportunity to observe users as they behave naturally in their own environment.  Nate will discuss how to design and conduct remote research studies, top to bottom, with little more than a phone and a laptop.

Beginning in 2003, Nate led the creation of the first moderated remote user research software, Ethnio, which is being used around the world to recruit hundreds of thousands of live participants for research.  He will draw on his experience overseeing hundreds of remote user research studies for Sony, Oracle, HP, Greenpeace, Electronic Arts, and others.

About the Speaker
Nate Bolt is an entrepreneur and artist who likes to research and design things, build dog treat robots, and make weird videos.  He currently serves as El Presidente of Bolt | Peters.

Nate gives talks about user experience research and design in both commercial and academic settings, including a recent keynote for the Urban Libraries Council. He recently co-authored Remote Research, a wildly, astonishingly, and creatively-titled book on remote user research.  Last century, he worked with faculty at the University of California, San Diego to create a degree titled “Digital Technology and Society,” which focused on the social impact of technology. He also completed a year of Communications Studies classes at the Sorbonne in Paris, where he failed every class, and was jailed briefly for playing drums in public without a license.
