balancing inputs
George Olsen (in a recent B&A; article) argues that the user is only one of the sources of information that should be considered when designing systems.

There needs to be a balance between considering the UX and design driven by ideas - possibly that the user doesn't even realise they need/want.

So the focus is again on persuasion rather than coercion. With the goal to achieve relevance and desirability.
