A fun day taking senior marketing and developers off-site to an interaction lab.
The Home Office providing succinct and pragmatic advice to commuters as part of campaign to thwart cyber crime through education: cyberstreetwise.com. This advert appears to build upon XKCDs excellent Password Strength cartoon.

Nice example of functional requirements engineering and standardisation on a project that marries legacy infrastructure (the platform height, distance) with a new bespoke build (the new TfL S Stock trains).
