Hi all,

Kathy Sierra was head of Java training at Sun and co-founder of the Head
First series of books at O'Reilly. She was and is very opinionated about
how people learn. See http://www.headfirstlabs.com/readme.php . In
particular:

"We use *people*. In stories, examples, pictures, etc., because, well,
because *you're* a person. And your brain pays more attention to people
than it does to things."

The first thing people should see should be something they can relate to.
People, or in OFBiz terms, Parties. Next best are products - they are
tangible. Accounting should not be the first thing people see. It only
makes sense to count the money after we've earned it.

Cheers

Paul
