I disagree. Steve Jobs made a living telling the customers what they
want. Of course, he also backed it up with a lot of research.

So, try to get first hand experience job shadowing the people who use
your material, and work out a solution that will help them to do their
jobs more easily. The public doesn't know what they need, and we can't
produce formats in a vacuum.

And PS: Everyone--trim the quoted portion of your emails. The Techwr-L
footer appeared three times in this message.

Thanks,

-Tony
