Zeno's Paradox
While critical thinking may not make up for a lack of knowledge, it is essential for gaining knowledge.

Human Factors:

An interview with Peter Merholz and Nathan Shedroff on User-Centered Design - (Digital Web Magazine)
Peter Merholz: Contrary to common wisdom, user-centered design is not a process, but a philosophy. User-centered design requires the inclusion of a product's end-users throughout the design process.

Nate Shedroff: User-centered Design is an approach (with many variations) to creating experiences (whether products, interfaces, events, or other media) for people with their needs in mind.
Nice interview. While it may be just the result of the interview format and/or editing, I strongly prefer Merholz' answers to Shedroff's.

    Information quality:   Medium - Merholz is very informative. Shedroff much less so.
    Propaganda quality:  High
    Propaganda level:     Medium.
