Req: Reference on readability of centered vsleft-justified text

Paul,

Not exactly, but here is a reference to a website for a book that
does discuss text alignment.

Best,
Jack

Participants needed for quick card sort - USD $50 Amazon Voucher Draw

 

(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

Some of you did a card sort for me a couple of months back. The results have been used in an article that is currently with the editor, so hopefully it will be available early next year.

Human-Poultry Interaction

"Researchers have developed a cybernetic system to allow physical
interaction over the internet. The system allows touching and feeling
of animals or other humans in real time, but it's first being tried
out on -- chickens."

"We understand the perceived eccentricity of developing a system for
humans to interact with poultry remotely, but this work has a much
wider significance."

UML

As an ignorant I'll ask it broad:

What do people have to say about us as a discipline/professionals and UML?
Is it something to do with as?
Do we integrate?

Thanks

Upload vCard instead of filling out a form?

I know lots (too many) of companies request some sort of information in
exchange for some sort of content, like demos and the like.
