First, I would like to say that I enjoy Vision Systems Design, especially the articles aimed at helping people to make informed decisions regarding their imaging systems. One editorial comment, however: I have noticed a few instances of gender-specific (i.gif., sexist) language in your articles. For example, in your first issue, the article by Mike Leary and John Bush used the term "man-machine interface." I, and no-doubt many others, would have preferred to see the widely used term "human-machine interface," which includes women as well.

Overall, however, I feel that your articles rate very highly as far as gender-inclusive language. This must not be an easy task, especially in our male-dominated profession. I commend your editorial team.
