Interaction Designers in Indianapolis?


I'm investigating interaction design as a new career path, and I'd like to
meet with someone who is already doing it professionally. Is anyone out
there in the Indianapolis area?


Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is
noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if
anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think
about such things. - Phillipians 4:8

Directory of People and Companies (Request for Design Inspiration)

I'm creating a basic (but beautiful and easy to use) web-based directory of
companies and contacts.

Any favorite designs that I might look at to see how other people have
elegantly presented this type of information?

A couple of my favorites:

Should a usability engineer have the knowledge about the professional area related to his products?

I'm working for a software company which provides ERP application. And i
have a question : Should a usability engineer have the knowledge about the
professional area( such as accounting, supply chain management,
manufacture and so on)?

My major is cognitive psychology. When i started my job 2 years before, i
got so frustrated that i even can't understand what users talking.
Because i don't know what exact task they would do with our application. My
education background don't contain those knowledge. Fortunately, I have
some colleagues who are expert in thoese areas.

something, and not necessarily of great use to the end-user.

User Product Reviews: Showing only positive ones - good or bad?

We sell software where I work. We're looking to integrate user reviews that we get through a third party service (Zueberance, I think) into our product pages.

The business stakeholder wants us to only show positive/glowing reviews.

I have an ehtical problem with that as I feel it's misleading. I also think it looks odd when scanning a list of only 4 and 5 star reviews... As a user, I think, "Sooo... where are some of the more 'negative' reviews?"
