    •  Kind of like designing software (none)
      oh, we need to talk with the end user? Why? We have the design specifications right here, that of course were done without the input of the end user. Like when you call somewhere for customer service and they ask for your account number first, not your name. Well, our system requires it. Grrr.
      •  NOt quite the same (none)
        Like I said before, it's hard to explain without specific examples.  I bet that if we talked it over with a couple of beers in us...

      •  I did design software (none)
        in my 20+ years in data processing before I became a teacher.   And if you didn't listen to the user, if you were a software vendor you would lose out to a competitor, and if you were inside, your boss would hear from their boss.

        Those who can, do. Those who can do more, TEACH!
