Safety Warnings -- how to do it right! Answered
I saw this on the MAKE blog today. It is, I think, the single greatest effort at a properly respectful (to the intelligence of the user) safety warning that I've seen. Kudos both to the tech writer who came up with it, and the lawyers who had enough common sense to release it into the wild.
My only complaint is that on SparkFun's Web page, the instruction manual is a completely inaccessible JPEG image. Perhaps part of being "safe" is not allowing anyone with low vision or who reads a language other than English, to know about the product? (Yes, I've contacted them directly about it.)
