More about World Usability Day on BBC

Another article about World Usability Day on BBC. Here's a quote:

> Thursday is World Usability Day.

> I'm sorry, but I'm not sure the world is ready for such a day.

> It's not that I don't think usability is a good idea - of course it is.

> It's not that I don't think some progress has been made. Of course it has. The success of the iconic iPod is largely down to the usability of the device, especially the click wheel interface and iTunes.

> No, my worry is that the world has so far to go in making technology usable that I fear that celebrating usability is premature and conceals just how much hassle we put up with on a daily basis.
