    I have some friends who work or have worked for a user interaction design company. Among their hiring tests was to ask applications to write a manual explaining the use of a telephone to someone entirely unfamiliar with them. It’s a good test of how to explain things that are blindingly obvious in light of one’s own familiarity, which is exactly what a good ui needs to do.
