Imi, the JOSM developer, is going to be there and I know from e-mail  
discussions that he has been thinking a lot about the user interface  
model used by JOSM, i.e. the various "modes" and what mouse clicks do  
when you are in a certain mode and so on, and whether that should  
perhaps be rearranged to work more like traditional graphics editors.  
I believe he'd be very happy about the chance to discuss this with  
someone who has experience in the field.

Be careful what you say about the wiki though, you'll have the job of  
First Wiki Overhaul Editor And Co-Ordinator before you can say "no  
thank you" ;-)

See you in Essen!
