  • In case you missed it, Raina Van Cleave of 352media has posted a derivative article on the same topic called Ten Commandments of User Experience here:
    http://www.352media.com/rantingandraving/rave.aspx?raveid=511&id=198&PostTitle=Ten-Commandments-of-User-Experience&CategoryName=Usability

    Personally I will stick to seven as we already have a religious 10 out there ;) Never the less the post is a very good read.
