Oh, one more thing: as I posted (by request) on Bruce Schneir's blog last
week, one thing that has *always* really annoyed me is when architects or
developers DON'T TALK TO END USERS, but some manager who *knows* what
needs to happen designs the whole thing. Too many times I've seen the end
result: end users, the mass of folks who have to use it, range from
dislike to loathing, and avoid using something that *should* have made
their life easier at work, instead making it *much* harder, until they
have no choice.

I've been pleased that the folks on this list have been solicited several
times in the last six months for our opinions.
