optimized keyboards(lay-outs) target users?

optimized keyboards (lay-outs) here: professional typist or the one who is
about to get familiar with typing with keyboards?! that is if I'm optimizing
a keyboard in user centred design process, which of those two should be the
one who gets involved in UCD iterative process and gathering feedbacks. One

Any thoughts on placement of company contact information?

Over the past few years, I¹ve been imploring smaller companies who have
brochure-ware sites or have a limited product offering to put their contact

depending on the overall site design.

Defining the mental model

(I hope this isn't a duplicate message, but I didn't see the first one
go through.)

I'm fleshing out a structural definition of "mental model," and I've
posted what I have so far:

hear some feedback on whether you think I'm dead-on, dead-wrong,
