(Apologies if you have seen this email elsewhere, I am interested in your views)
Hi All,
I have a question for you all on ethics. I have just received a mailshot from HFI, advertising a training course in London on User Centred Analysis and Conceptual Design. Please note that I do not compete with HFI on training and have no personal grudge of any kind.

Anti Read: Want to build the next “hot” technology?

Faith's take on Roger Costello's short blog entry is completely and
100% spot on. It's exactly what he's trying to get at, but
