  1. Ken and Johanna, I'm looking forward to seeing how Meghan and her two partners use their exposure on the upcoming Bravo show.However, their on-society"" web site could use a makeover. It's a case study on what happens when a cool idea is badly executed. It's also a reminder that usability should not take a back seat to design pizazz."
