He's also a mentor for Lean Startup Machine and speakup.io.

You'll often find him ranting in a corner of the bar about how agile, business and user experience folk need to play nice together. Be kind and buy him whisky.

comment What's a catchy name for “overly complex, barely designed interface”?
I'm with Charles. Poor design is poor design... and I've seen an awful lot of bad design by people who call themselves "designers" - and some rather good design by folk who call themselves "engineers". I find broad characterisations of one group by another harmful.

comment Best Design/Order/Layout For Mailing Address Form
Indeed. By relying on just number/postcode without a backup method you will exclude people with fresh postcodes (new postcodes come into existence, and the Royal Mail PAF database released to the rest of the world isn't always up to date - depending on what subscription servcie they choose.)

comment Any resources on user interface testing?
Hi. Are you talking about usability testing (finding problems by getting real users to interact with the UI), automated UI testing (using tools like Selenium or Window Licker to write programs to see whether the UI does what it should do), or some kind of exploratory testing (when you sit and interact with the system and try and find problems.)?
