    initial v1  
    99What we 'think' is intuitive or even obvious from writing or even using the software ourselves is often not the case. In fact I was quite astounded at what people 'missed' and or how they 'thought' my software did or should work. I'd suggest that Microsoft 'obviously' didn't watch anyone using Win 8 on a normal monitor for normal 'general' use before releasing it for example?

    11 If you think about it everyone is sitting in front of a computer using BP (or WP etc) isolated and remotely from everyone else. 'REMOTELY' and absent are how things are done with software / computers and yet it's all for 'real' people. The only way you can find out how to 'really' improve something is to sit behind them (out of sight) as they us it. You wait till they finish and then ask them 'why' they do things in particular ways . . . or why they are 'not' doing something that seems obvious to us / the writers.

    1313Writing software 'to do what it does' is just a small part of what makes up it's final 'real' live user functionality. What your software does can be brilliant to the writers BUT it might not actually 'functionally' work (or work very well) with real people.
