How do i get started?

Hello members,

Basically i am a visual designer working in a small team. We do detailed
prototype design on Inkjet printers using flash. Its basically to give a
complete understanding of the work flow like copy,print,scan etc for user
research and testing. In these recent days, my personal interest lies in
interaction designing and supporting that my boss wants me to take up some
task flows as exercize to start off. But i do not acquire any sort of
training or experience in Interaction design.

anyone here from Newsweek?

The "Secrets of the 2008 Campaign" is an excellent read, but there's a
really screwy navigation flaw.

When you get done with each chapter (which are divided into "pages" much
longer than my screen), you can't just click "go to next chapter" or
something. You have to remember what chapter you're on (it's not on
screen) then go click on the next "Chapter" tab at the top of the

What to choose? (technical writer or technical tester)

Hello members,
I recently graduated in user centered design and have been to a few job
interviews. It is almost impossible to get a job as a user experience
designer, interaction designer or a usability consultant since many of the
corporations here wants to hire someone with several years of experience.
NOKIA has promised me a job as a User Interface Designer since I wrote my
thesis with them, but that position is still not open.
