If you are going to quote a Usability Expert...

... at least get their name correct. We had a obscenely compensated consultant give us a demo of Microsoft's Sharepoint's capabilities for our company intranet. The consultant was as confident in his usability knowledge and skills as he was loud. We hired him from "X" consulting firm in South Austin. They are a very highly regarded Microsoft solutions consulting firm. The only problem is he kept referring to Jakob Nielsen as "Neils Jakobsen" with the emphasis on the Nordic soft pronunciation of the "J". Very pretentious. Very wrong. Actually, lame.

May you ever be safe from self-styled "experts."
