Ben Laurie keeps Paul Madsen and Pat Patterson honest. User centered approaches would include your family doctor, the auto body shop down the street when you crash putting on your makeup driving to work and even the guy who delivers newspapers to your doorstep since the concept of kids doing work is a fading memory.
