What came 1st, the chicken or the egg? Personally I don’t think you can’t separate the two; it’s asking what came first is wrong. As two evolved together. It’s really a systems question, for a culture reared on the separation of user and technology; a culture which needs to know which is 1st to know which is dominant. But simply seeing the two as one and same really is a solution to age old systems problem – not that anyone is interested..as the division runs deeper than just a usability problem.
