Well, you're assuming the banks make their own ATM's? I would say that's
not the case. A large bank would be the only one with the capital to change
ATM design. A smaller bank would simply pick one of the choices that's
available and buy it. I don't see a small bank paying the ATM manufacturer
to design the perfect ATM.

Since 2001 I have been organizing IA Cocktail Hours in Amsterdam, about 6 a year. These events have always been frequented by a mix of people with and without the job title Information Architect, and with or without a strong focus on IA in their work.

No Exit Point in Wizard Design

When I went through the process of transitioning from hotmail to Windows Live Mail Beta, I noticed that the wizard only had the "Continue" button. There was no way to get out except for closing the browser. Even the top logo was not linked to anywhere.

I had no problem of going through the wizard to make the transition successful.
