I've been a developer for over 30 years in one form or another. I learnt Pascal at University and my first job was programming in Fortran 66. I've since moved to C# & .NET via Ada, C and C++.

I've been involved with UI design all my working life, from Computer Aided Design software, through 3D graphics applications, to developer tools and most recently web applications and now Silverlight LoB applications.

comment Quantifying discoverability on where or how information is found, presented
In the How to Ask section of the "ask question" page there's a link to the help. There you will find the links to the information you require. If you think that these links should be more prominent then come up with a positive solution and ask on Meta Stack Exchange.

comment Combining all the address fields into one?
@theotherone - my experience probably comes from the fact that I live near a large city. However, your experience doesn't contradict mine - the required fields are forcing you to enter more information that you strictly need to.
