I'll take that bate. I am willing to be presumptuous enough to call myself a
"real user interface expert."

I am a Chemical Engineer by training. I have specialized training in failure
analysis as well as operability studies. I have designed and modified
real-world user interfaces. Granted, my experience is with user interfaces
that can result in death and dismemberment, but the lessons learned apply.

Does the committee accept my qualifications as valid and useful?
